Must see · Scenic Walking Area · Lookout
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.

  • The westernmost point in continental Europe. A beautiful view high up from the water. The sunset was lovely. Very windy, at least when my wife and I visited in February, so be prepared. There is a souvenir shop, snack bar, and restaurant on site, which was a nice reprieve from the wind.
  • Very beautiful place. Yeah at first this place is perfect view with seaside, rock mountains, high sea view point. But there was too many travelers although its working day. Very strong wind here, so be careful to take the picture. There was some checkin point nearby the main view, you need to walk a little bit to the high mountain then you will got award!
