  • Very nice point of view. Nice stop to do. Pretty lighthouse and frame. A nice ride to go. Very nice

  • It is the land of the western end of the Eurasian continent. Two granite cliffs were falling into the Pacific Ocean, and the spectacular scenery was spreading. It is a magnificent cape that is the end of the earth without even a shrub because of the strong wind. Stand at your own risk on the edge of the cliff.

  • Well it is a very impressive place, with a stunning view, however, bare in mind that if you're not "view" kind of guy there is not much to do there longer than 30mins. Small tip I would like to share: Avoid driving there!! The roads are so narrow and curving sometimes that local drivers beep before approaching such places. Also I wouldn't recommend the bus for the same reason and its extremely long rout. Taxi is the best deal! Specially if you're are 3 or 4 people group the taxi would be maybe 1 or 2 eur more expensive or even cheaper if you get lucky. The bus from Sintra costed us 13.5 for free of us and on the way back managed to fish a drive for 12.75)) It was really a lucky strike but most of drivers were talking about 15eur for the ride and it took twice less time. Have a nice one!))
  • Fantastic view, but only for non group visiting
