This lookout at the edge of Europe is a great way to start your Sintra trip route if you have your own car. Whether driving to here from the South of the peninsula or, my preferred route, through the park itself, it's the best way to prepare yourself for the Sintra magnificence! Plenty of parking and paths that allow you... More

Don't leave Portugal without seeing it! Breathtaking, spectacular view of the ocean and cliffs. For the adventurous (as we were), we recommend climbing the rocks to the ledge. Good for families as long as you keep your small children closeby; the viewpoint has a wall around it but you may venture out at your risk. Didn't use the restrooms or... More

Cabo da Roca was one of the last stops of our tour of Sintra (with Go2Lisbon Tours), and it was a wonderful finale to a great day! From these cliffs, we were graced with breathtaking views of the ocean and the rocks the waves break against. The water is so clear and blue, it would be tempting to jump in,... More

Worth a detour. Cool because its the westernmost point in continental Europe but also so beautiful. Good for a rest stop as there are restrooms and a small food place.

The area is windy, as would be expected on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean. This is a great place to access the many hiking trails the go along the coastal area of Portugal. We enjoyed our visit!

In spring the hills here are covered with flowers and it is very beautiful. The views are better than I expected, so well worth the visit.
