Portuguese Atlantic coast

The Portuguese Atlantic coast is a mosaic of steep cliffs interspersed with small coves and narrow beaches. Jagged rocks, lonely monadnocks or huge boulders sticking out of the water. In one word, picturesquely, although it may not be a dream paradise for sunbathers … 😀 Strong waves, strong wind but exceptional views, sometimes simply full of horror 🙂

Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of Europe

One place along the coast, in addition, located quite close to Lisbon, seems to be really unique. In this place, an information board hangs on a small pedestal topped with a cross. Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of the mainland of Europe, and in the words of the Portuguese poet Luís de Camões “here where the land ends and the sea begins“.

A trip to Cabo da Roca is a pleasure. After all, there is nothing more relaxing than a walk along the coast with fabulous views, the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean and a pleasant sea breeze, although in my case it was almost a gale. 🙂
