Cabo da Roca – lighthouse
This monument celebrates the end of the European mainland and the beginning of the Atlantic ocean.
Cabo da Roca, Portugal
Cape Roca is a cape which forms the westernmost extent of mainland Portugal and continental Europe. The cape is in Sintra, near Azóia, in the southwest of the district of Lisbon. It is in the nearest point between Europe and the USA.
This magical and stunning atmosphere was described by our famous Portuguese poet, Luís Vaz de Camões (1524-1580),with these words:
Onde a terra termina e o mar começa…
Ponta mais ocidental do continente europeu’
Where the land ends and the sea begins…
Westernmost point of the European continent’
“Wherever you are, be there totally. Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.” – Eckart Tolle
Wishing you all a Happy 2016! Embrace every moment and don’t forget to smile!
I am nothing
I shall always be nothing
I cannot wish to be anything.
Aside from that, I have within me all the dreams of the world.
Fernando Pessoa (Portuguese poet 1888-1935)
