Cabo da Roca Reviews
The steep cliffs at the western most point of Europe are an imposing sight, and looking down from the edge is breath-taking. more »
Really a lifetime experience. High cliffs at the end of the world (it was the end of the world in the Middle Ages). And a huge mighty ocean in front. Many tourists but definitely worth the visit! more »
Best ocean view! even better than SF Because here you are super high on the mountain. Also recommend to see a sunset here. It’s magical. Also try to go to the beach nearby. It’s super nice.
Marvelous place. This is the westernmost point in Portugal and in Continental Europe. Such an amazing place, but it gets really crowded with tourists and coaches. If you can go there first thing in the morning before all the craze. It also gets pretty windy so be prepared. But such wonderful views.
