Cabo de Roca – At the edge of the world.

“Here…where the land ends and the sea begins.” was how Camões described the Cabo da Roca in his famous book ‘Os Lusíadas’. The site is located in Sintra and it is the most western point of continental Europe. It is approximately a 40 minutes drive from Lisbon, and about halfway on the road from Sintra to Cascais. The site is open to visitors and has a breathtaking view of both the ocean and the Serra de Sintra. Moreover there is a lighthouse, a memorial stone with the words of Camões and a shop for souveniers. For those who will come by the end of the day, worth staying to enjoy the sunset. – See more at Cabo de Roca at: http://liveportugal.pt/en/cabo-da-roca-the-most-westen-point-of-continental-europe/#sthash.M6t8FOcA.dpuf
