And what to say of
Dejá Lu, the first
solidarity bookstore of Portugal, where donated books are categorized in a very unique and inspiring way, and then sold to those who want to contribute to the cause: helping the
Portuguese Association of Trisomy 21 Carriers? Waiting for new readers, the Books That Scare; the Authors That Every Year Don't Win the Nobel By a Hair; and the Autographed; among many others, occupy the
first floor of the Taberna da Praça and expect you to take them to keep you company at the
pool or at the
solarium. Besides admirable, this project organizes
hours of narration and several
creative writing workshops to impart more dynamism and originality to the space. If any of these events coincide with your stay, it is worth taking advantage of. After all, these storybooks already carry within a story, that can keep on telling if you purchase them.
Cascais is a quite unique and special art, that combines savoir-faire with relaxation and a sophisticated environment with the freedom that the elements promote. So the ideal is to visit all the
galleries, meet all the
artists, buy some books in
Dejá Lu, visit the
Spa, stay to
read on the patio and live the most of every minute of the stay, because outside the walls, the invitation to relax and the ride takes care of you and the best thing is to even
wander the narrow and elegant streets or wander towards the sea. Like this you make sure that you enjoy as a local all the life Cascais has to offer.
