Pretty cliffs and a little lookout on the westernmost edge of continental Europe. Not much there, but a little gift shop. It's not that far out of the way if you are travelling around Sintra and Cascais, so it's a pretty drive and worth the little side trip.

Worth a visit. I've been twice and this is the Eastern most point in Europe. The coastline is very dramatic, steep cliffs against some green hills and wild weather. Great for photos.

Must visit. That's it :P It's not difficult to get there from Lisbon - you go to Sintra and then take the Scotturb bus for the Cabo da Roca and then go to Cascais or back to Sintra. Just be careful not to miss the last bus.

Beautiful place for pictures during sunset time. There is a light house and it is very wind. Parking available, but during summer season can be trick to find a spot to park. Will be back once more for sunset.

a little windy but a gorgeous place to take pictures and enjoy the beautiful Atlantic ocean views! It is better to rent a car to get to this location and then make sure that you go to "Praia do Guincho" Guinco beach for the blow hole views too

The rolling green valleys ending in steep cliffs and crashing waves are beautiful. The monument is not very exciting to look at, but the views make the trip worth it. A totally different side to Lisbon.

Cabo da Roca is a great place to visit. I'd recommend catching the bus in the morning, taking a peak then walking along the cliff path to a nearby beach called Praia da Ursa. Beautiful scenery.

Not what we were expecting. What a pleasant surprise! The views of the Atlantic Ocean are absolutely breathtaking at this most westerly point. Loved every minute of our quick stop. Easy parking to get in and out.
