Cabo da Roca, Portugal

When explorers reached this wild jagged cliff edge west of Sintra, Portugal, they thought it was the end of the world. It was because they had not yet discovered other lands across the Atlantic Ocean.

This is Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point on mainland Europe.

Frankly there is not much to say about Cabo da Roca because honestly there isn’t much there apart from a lighthouse, a coffee shop, a gift shop and a monument to mark the location.

Its not hard to understand why explorers thought this point was the end of the world. The waves crushing against the cliffs & nothing in sight except the ocean stretching out to then merge with the sky. With the chill of the winds and the incredible peaceful views, you can’t help but to ponder on life and the events in the past that have got you to this point.
