If you find yourself at the end of Europe, you really should stay at the Pousada de Sagres. This is not a historical building (it dates from the 1960s), but the rooms are comfortable and immaculately clean. The staff was amazingly polite and helpful. We had one dinner in the restaurant, and it was exquisite, with a delicious wine.
But this Pousada is about location, location, location. The breathtaking beauty is enough, but to look out your window and gaze across the Atlantic, at the same place where Prince Henry set out to explore the oceans and open up global navigation to Europe, gives you a deep sense of history and awe.
If you go, take the right gear for wind--you are on a promontory that juts out into the sea--and walk the 4km to the lighthouse. Go down to the pebbled beaches. Touch the Atlantic Ocean and dream of Africa, Brazil, Goa, Macao. Then go back to the Pousada bar, and let the gracious staff take care of you!
