Juan Carlos, who retained the title of king after his retirement in 2014, also spent part of his childhood there at the Villa Giralda. He lived there for a long time before he took the throne in 1975.
The move has not been officially confirmed. Mayor Carlos Carreiras of Cascais, which includes Estoril, said that the Spanish king is always welcome, but he did not say whether he had already arrived there. According to Portuguese media, Juan Carlos de Borbón traveled to Estoril immediately after his announcement to leave Spain.
Earlier, there seemed to be a chance that the Spanish king could also come to the Netherlands.
