Cabo da Roca

Sintra

Information

Cabo da Roca is a stunning cape that forms the westernmost point of mainland Europe (and, of course, mainland Portugal). The great Portuguese Poet Luís de Camões once defined Cabo da Roca as the place "where the land ends and the sea begins".
It is located in the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park and its coordinates (38°47′N, 9°30′W) are inscribed on a stone plaque on the monument at the site.
The cliff rises out of the Atlantic Ocean to approximately 140 metres above sea level, and the lighthouse along with a tourist shop also sit on top of the cliff.
The cape is a popular tourist attraction: every Sunday morning it is common to see many bikers gathered to share their thoughts and experiences about motorcycles, enjoying the astonishing blessed landscape.
