A defesa costeira do litoral de Sintra‐Cascais durante a Época Islâmica

On this study we intend to explore the presumable occupation of the port of Cascais during the Islamic period, focus on the importance of its location regarding the development of the nautical process towards Lisbon, as well as the necessity of using its coastline to continue the coastal defence system which was taking shape from Sintra. We will also approach the subject of the possible link between the name of the Muslim sailor “Khashkhash” and the toponym “Cascais”.
