Cabo da Roca is the western most point of mainland Europe, a riot of colour with dozens of types of flowers covering the whole area. It is a cape in the Portuguese municipality of Sintra, which is just west of the district of Lisbon. The area became known to the Romans as Promontorium Magnum and was referred to by one Portuguese poet as the place “where the land ends and the sea begins”.
Cabo da Roca, due to its location on the coast, is a great place to see a variety of birds and some other local wildlife. This is a great place for tourists and travellers to visit if they’re seeking some stunning photo opportunities. With both the sea and the cliffs surrounding you, you’ll be able to spend the day, quite literally at the edge of Europe, soaking in your surroundings.
