What people say

"Surrounded by wild nature, a lighthouse overlooking the ocean and cliffs more than 100 meters high, Cabo de Roca is the westernmost point in Europe. It is a place rich in history considering that, until the discovery of America, he thought there was nothing beyond Cabo da Roca. In fact, in the past it was considered the "edge of the world" where the land ended and the sea began. The best time to come to this place, of course, is sunset, when you can see the sun disappear behind the horizon. One thing you may not know is that you can ask for the certificate certifying that you have been to the westernmost point of Europe!! 👣with public transports: Bus linea 403 Sintra Estação-Cabo da Roca. 🎟️Ticket cost: free (to pay only the transports) "
