  • It would be a shame to get up to Sintra and not see Cabo da Roca. Like all the cliffs and lighthouses it has that particular atmosphere, between the romantic and the tormented according to the sea. A magical place., they had advised us not because of the wind instead the child had no problems indeed she loved the expanse of succulent plants on the ground and rocks to be able to climb over. You can get there by public transport (bus 403) from Sintra or from Cascais in about 30-40 minutes

  • This is the most western point in Europe and where the Portuguese explorers started their discovery of the world.  more »
  • A beautiful place to visit. The cliffs over the Atlantic Ocean are charming. It’s the westernmost point of continental Europe. Better not to wear slippery shoes or flip flops. Many parking spaces available. Also WC with fees is available.
  • This area has stunning views and amazing trails to explore. Transport to get to and from Sintra was frequent and very easy to manage as long as you’re paying attention to where the bus is going. Make sure you bring a coat or jacket because the wind is chilly!
