Bairro Amarelo

Bairro Amarelo is the result of a local intervention to improve commerce and restaurants in the center of Cascais. It promotes the attraction of visitors to the local commerce through the implementation of more terraces and cultural entertainment, and ensures greater pedestrian safety by prohibiting car circulation.

This joint project between the Associação Empresarial do Concelho de Cascais (AECC) and local businessmen delimits an area in the historic center, between the streets Nova da Alfarrobeira, Alexandre Herculano and Afonso Sanches. 
Similar to the Yellow Neighborhood, there is Estrada Amarela in Carcavelos, operating in the restaurant area of Estrada da Rebelva, only occurring during the summer time.
