Portugal: Cascais - 2018 European Youth Capital

The European Youth Capital (abbreviated EYC) is the title awarded to a European city for the period of one year, during which it is given the chance to showcase, through a multi-faceted programme, its youth-related cultural, social, political and economic life and development. The European Youth Capital is an initiative by the European Youth Forum, and the first capital was chosen in 2009. The current, capital for the 2018 calendar year is Cascais. It is a coastal town and a municipality in Portugal, 30 kilometres (19 miles) west of Lisbon. On this nice minisheet used on this letter from Portugal, you can see Saint Martha's Lighthouse and the House of Saint Mary (Casa de Santa Maria) in Cascais.
