“By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

The westernmost part of Europe provides stunning views of the coast. We stopped here on our way back from visiting the National Palace, Pena Palace, and the Moorish castle. We didn't get the document certifying our visit (from the TI office), but took some nice pictures. If you didn't know any better, it could pass for the west coast of the U.S.

“The powers of nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Europe's westernmost point can be reached by bus from Sintra.

This is a place you will enjoy if you want to appreciate the powers of nature. The landscape and views are breathtaking.
I was here on a dull and windy day in January and it was still lovely. It's great for landscape photography.

You can either stay at the top of the rock and look at the great waves breaking on the cliffs or you can start to climb down closer to the water. Mind you, that could be dangerous when it's wet and slippery on a rainy day and the climb back up again could be challenging. There is a path for the more adventurous.

Right next to the lighthouse there is an info center, a souvenir shop and a restaurant, so tourism is very well organized. The bus stop is right there and you can see the timetable as well so you can plan your visit accordingly, unless you're on another tour or driving on your own.

“End of the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Have you ever been to the end of the world? If you find yourself in Lisbon or, better still, Sintra take a trip..The views are great and depending on the time of year the shimmer of the light must be amazing.. I was there in month of January and February and some days the light - even with the shy northern sun during those months- was fantastic. I could only imagine what the brighter months must be like. They also give you a certificate... affirming that you have been to the end of the world no less!

“The end”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

The edge of Europe. Rock ends, ocean begins and in the end of it America. Wind is strong so be careful.
