This was probably one of the best places we visited in our trip - Europe's westernmost point. Breathtaking beautiful views of the sea. Great place for some photography :) A good place to relax for sometime especially after all the castle and monument visits of Sintra. This does not come in the usual route of the Sintra tour, you need... More

Cabo da Roca is a cape which forms the westernmost extent of mainland Portugal and continental Europe . The cape is in the Portuguese municipality of Sintra. Breathtaking view!

The reason I wanted to go to this place is because it is Europe's westernmost point, just to tick off my checklist on things to do in Sintra-Cascais region. But... The moment I stepped foot on Cabo da Roca I was completely blown away by the beautiful landscape ranging from beautiful hills and the amazing cliffs leading to the sea.... More

I am starting to set a tradition with going to the most western point of continental Europe each year close to the 1st of December. The view is breathtaking and although the site is quite crowded you can relax watching and listening the ocean from the hills nearby.

This is one of the most beautiful and historical places in Portugal. The view to the sea is breathtaking. The place was a bit full of tourists but you can work around that. This is a free sightseeing place but to get there you definitely need to go by car or bus.

Great views, we were here in winter so was really windy. In summer can definitely walk all the way down and also great place for a picnic.

You can get a certificate for reaching the most western point of Europe and Asia. Watched the sunset from here, it was really beautiful.

Cabo da Roca is the westernmost point of both mainland Europe and Portugal, and a touristic pilgrimage destination. All the forums will tell you not to miss this spot, and I agree with them, despite the hairpin bends leading to the Cabo. Once there, expect a lot of wind, a lot of tourists, and a breathless point of view on... More

Got here to see the sunset. Views were marvelous but staying on the overcrowded top were not our goal. We went down the slope to the small beach and this was fantastic! Not a single person around, landscapes like from another planet, amazing colors... Way down is not very difficult but requires appropriate footwear and attention - this is not... More
