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.

  • Made a quick stop here after visiting the Park at Sintra. We were lucky to have good weather as it seems most of the time it is quite foggy and windy here. The views of the Atlantic were excellent...

  • Cabo da Roca. A great place where Europe ends and the Atlantic Ocean begins. Beautiful views, landscape and cliffs. A lighthouse and a certification point for reaching the end of Europe. I recommend seeing this place. Amazing impressions. There is also a restaurant where you can eat tasty. 🤩😍😀
