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.
