Visualize Europe as a whole. Now, take that thought to the end of this vast continent, to its most western point, where the mainland ends and the Atlantic begins. Here you’ll find Cape Roca.
It was a feeling of immensity the one I felt when I first came to this place and looked at the sea. After all, the land only reappears under the US flag. Well, with the Azores islands still on the way.
This is a beautiful walk, framed by the lighthouse, one of the oldest of the Portuguese coast, and by the stone bearing the words of Luiz de Camões:
“Here, were the land ends and the sea begins”
What to do in Cape Roca
If you visit Cape Roca, walk the trails that extend along the edge of the hillside and don’t forget to discover the Bear Stone legend and the rock that gives it life. 😉
And, since you are here, how about a trip to Quinta da Regaleira?
