Create an itinerary including Cabo da Roca
Europe's most Western point, Cabo da Roca offers beautiful views of the rugged coast. Walk or bike to the Cabo da Roca lighthouse, which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy time outside while exploring this spot, known as the Rock of Lisbon in the Age of Sail--a windy cape of granite boulders and rocky sea cliffs. Try to spot the low-lying vegetation and marine birds roosting temporarily along the coast and in nearby coves. At the site's monument, you can grab a bite to eat or explore nearby shops.

  • Amazing sightseeing! It is totally worth the trip not only because it's the most western point of Europe, but also because you can enjoy the peace & quiet and just be overwhelmed by nature's beauty...

  • The view from Cabo da Roca is well worth the visit. The 403 bus takes you to Cabo da Roca from Sintra (just by the train station) for 4-5 euros. Visit Sintra first and head on to Cabo da Roca after...

  • Really beautiful area at the western most edge of Europe. There's a small monument along with a couple buildings and shops near by. The trails near by are short but the views are beautiful. Taking in the view is peaceful because it makes you feel so small compared to the earth as a whole. It was peaceful. I recommend making the trip - it's not too far out of the way
  • The Gateway to the West! Cabo the Roca is a place that inspires imagination of a traveler. One can feel the spirit of Columbus looking to the West and the wonder of what's beyond the horizon. It's a quiet place of meditation, at least it was when we were there and it was devoid of tourists. I recommend it for a change of scenery and pace.
