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:

‘Aqui…
Onde a terra termina e o mar começa…
Ponta mais ocidental do continente europeu’

‘Here…
Where the land ends and the sea begins…
Westernmost point of the European continent’
