In Portugal We can find a lot of tourist destinations and places of interest that are fantastic, which gives us a great opportunity to get to know them as we practically have them next door. Today I would like to tell you about a fascinating place that reminds me a lot of Finisterre, another end of the world but in the neighboring country.
Its about Cabo da Roca, a place that has a spectacular 140 meter high cliff and is the westernmost point of this part of Europe. It's in Estoril And it is one of the must-see if you are in that city or in other nearby cities such as Sintra or Lisbon, although it is really worth visiting from anywhere in the country.
There you can find a spectacular centennial lighthouse that dominates the landscape and which is the third oldest in Portugal, standing since 1772 and which for many years served as a guide for Portuguese sailors who sailed the seas in search of new riches and treasures. In addition, it is inside the Sintra-Cascais Natural ParkSo it is an exceptional opportunity to discover the incredible landscapes of the area.
Before, the area was very unpopulated and without buildings, but as it has been so successful, they have started to put some little things like restaurants or shops, and in fact in one of them you can buy a diploma that certifies that you have been there. It is highly recommended to sit on the terrace of one of the restaurants to be able to enjoy the sunset while you taste the Portuguese gastronomy.
Definitely a place full of magic and sensations where it seems that you can touch the horizon with your fingertips, a place where dreams seem to come true and where you will see a beauty that you will not be able to see in many places. A place, Cabo da Roca, that you have to visit at least once in your life.
