5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

the fact that you are standing on the most western edge of European mainland makes you proud. excellent views, but watch your hat due to strong wind!

“Hazy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

It was a bit disappointing - after driving to see Cabo da Roca - the mist and fog were down so we couldnt enjoy the view. Shame. Best to plan it for a clear day.

“Edge of western europe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Visited here on a driving trip along the coast from Lisbon to Sintra.

I have a fear of heights, but this spot is well laid out and the viewing area below the lighthouse provides fantastic views of the rugged Atlantic coast in both directions.

There is a tourist shop selling certificates to show you have been here and maps of the Sintra area. There is also a little restaurant that provides reasonable food at reasonable prices with fabulous views if you get the right table.

Well worth a visit!

“end of world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Now we know that beyond the ocean there is a land :). People always traveling to places that are at end of something. This place has spectacular view on cliffs.

“Feel the power of the ocean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Well worth the stop to feel the power of the ocean and imagine Vasco de Gama and other intrepid adventurers head off into the unknown.
