Behold the rugged coastal scenery from the most southwesterly point in Europe at Cape Saint Vincent. Visit the cape's 1846 lighthouse, which stands at 24 m (79 ft) and watches over one of the world's busiest shipping lanes. Listen to the waves crashing on the cliffs and keep your eyes open for the many birds that inhabit and nest in the area, such as gulls, eagles, storks, and falcons. The terrain is moderately rough, so keep this in mind if bringing children or those with limited mobility. Add Cape Saint Vincent to your Sagres travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Sagres road trip planning site.

Cape Saint Vincent reviews
Such a beautiful landmark to visit! Parking was good and only a short walk to some spectacular and breath taking views!!! The cafe was great too. Highly recommended! more »
A nice place to see, also said “end of the world”. Amazing clipps, little bit windy but wonderful view. Also a must to see. more »
It is the most southwestern point of Portugal and continental Europe. In the Middle Ages, this place was considered the end of the world known to Europeans. You must be there to see it! Centuries ago, they also looked into the same vastness.
It was really nice and sunny when we arrived there. Clear skies and no wind. Worth walking on the cliffs as well for some spectacular views.
