Cabo da Roca, in Portugal in the Serra de Sintra, It is the westernmost point of mainland Europe, Cape is a mountain 150 meters above sea.
Many people in ancient times believed that this point was the end of the world, for they had not yet discovered the new world, the Americas.
We passed by Cabo da Roca, on a trip we made from north to south of Portugal by car, that day and left early at our hotel in Lisbon, We went first to the amazing city of Sintra and then went to visit other very interesting sights near the Sintra region, as the Cabo da Roca and the beach of Azenha do Mar.
O Cabo da Roca, today is a kind of park to walk by the sea, there is one name that helps Lighthouse signaling ships, in antiquity they say it was a fort that protected the entrance of the sea in Lisbon.
To get into the cable is required to drive or some tour, We went by car, and it is also a cool ride for those who will visit the Quinta da Regaleira and the Moorish Castle in the town of Sintra, It is the tip, pass by there after, it's not too far.
No Cabo da Roca, you will soon, we were around an hour, long enough to see the Lighthouse, the landscapes of the region and the Atlantic Ocean.
