The cape with the nice lighthouse is the westernmost point of Europe (and Eurasian land mass) with its location at 9 degrees and 30 minutes of western longitude. It is a touristy spot with lot of cars and buses, almost always crowded, but a very scenic place with great views.

The Cape of Rock is worth to visit and its not far from Lisbon. You can have good photospots but its not recommended for those who wants to relax and enjoy scenery as it gets so touristy. But good for taking pictures though

I loved it here, we arrived quite late there were still bus loads of tourists at the point. It's the most western point in Eurasia there's nothing but the Atlantic and then America on the other side.

A bit crowded at sunset and neither the tourist information centre nor the restaurant were open which was a bit disappointing but still beautiful for sunset. There's not much more there - a big cross and that about it.

This is a must see attraction if you are in the area. Also it is a good place for a biking trip from Cascais around 18 km x 2 be aware of fast driving motor cycles. The view is fantastic with a rough nature and open sea view

Would give this a miss. Yes it is quite scenic and the blooming spring flowers are lovely but it is simply too popular with too many people: can't see the wood for the trees, people arguing over parking spots ...
