Sagres

Situated on the most southwestern point of the European continent, the cape has a cliff of approximately 69 m and virtually no vegetation. With an indescribable landscape, where the land with its cliffs crosses the infinite sea, Cabo de São Vicente is an image of Portuguese discovering sentiment, ideal for watching the passage of ships sailing between the Mediterranean Sea and northern Europe. It was considered a sacred place in Neolithic times and was once nicknamed “Promontorium Sacrum” by the Roman people, dedicated to the Saturn God. It owes its present name to Saint Vincent, a martyr of the Christian Church.

One can also visit the lighthouse.
