Alcabideche was inhabited by several peoples, of Iberian, Roman and Arab origins and cultures. After the Romans, the presence of Arab civilization was particularly striking. According to some toponimists, Alcabideche is believed to come from an Arabic word, “al-qabdaq”, which means “water source”, attributing it to the existence of two major sources of this locality, the “village that is very diuretic and heals the pain of stone and that of plentiful that cures diarrhea.”
The growth of Cascais out of the walls of the primitive castle forced the creation of the parish of São Vicente de Alcabideche in 1841.

The activities are varied in this village with such a special geography. With the sea on one side and the mountain on the other, there’s a lot to do. Cycling on a bike path that extends to Guincho is one of the possibilities. Surfing, diving or sailing are almost mandatory experiences. Horseback riding and, of course, playing golf, are some of the activities on land. And if the outdoors isn’t appealing enough, there’s always the allure of gambling at the historic Casino Estoril.
The parish of Alcabideche has 5 public schools, among basic and secondary schools in addition to these public institutions there are also private reference institutions (Salesians of Manique) guaranteed access to good studies for people from different social classes.
