Create an itinerary including Cape Saint Vincent
Behold the rugged coastal scenery from the most southwesterly point in Europe at Cape Saint Vincent. Visit the cape's 1846 lighthouse, which stands at 24 m (79 ft) and watches over one of the world's busiest shipping lanes. Listen to the waves crashing on the cliffs and keep your eyes open for the many birds that inhabit and nest in the area, such as gulls, eagles, storks, and falcons. The terrain is moderately rough, so keep this in mind if bringing children or those with limited mobility.
