“Fantastic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

After a longish journey on bus 403 you get to admire the spectacular views. Been told you can get a certificate but couldn't find it anywhere and the only souvenir shop is overpriced.

“Great views, but really, just another headland.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Famous for being the most westerly point of mainland Europe, the seascapes and views up and down the coast make this a worthwhile place to visit. There is the magnificent lighthouse, a tourist information centre, and cafe/restaurant, and it is served by public transport from Sintra, Colores and Cascais.

“Stunning view, peaceful feeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Cabo Da Raco is considered the western most point of Europe, and offers some brilliant view of the atlantic ocean. The drive to this place from various parts of Portugal itself is stunning. While this place does not offer anything other than just the view of the ocean, this view is a great enough reason to visit this place. The vast expanse of ocean in front of you, from the top of a mountain provides great sense of tranquil.

There is a small cafe in this place where we could have some refreshments. Apart from that, do not expect any other amenities. Best time to visit this place is close to sunset (on a clear day), and you are guaranteed to enjoy a brilliant view that will stick to your memory for ever.

Have been to this place at least 10 times during my stay in Lisbon, and every single visit is still fresh!

“Amazing!...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Among the thousands of places to visit in Portugal, Cabo da roca is probably one of the best!....

The proximity to Sintra o Lisbon, make this place one to visit if you spend more than three days in this area.

Cascais, Sintra, etc.... Are also a good excuse to visit this cape!...

“Stunning View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Super Windy location, the very very west point of Europe.
Very fascinating and evocating place to be.
You just go there for the view, no service in there except for a little bar and a toilet.
