Cabo da Roca – Windy, Dramatic, Raw Beauty
This place was believed to be the edge of the world up until the 14th century (it still is, for most of us in Cascais 😊)
The Cabo da Roca lighthouse was the first purpose-built lighthouse in Portugal and was completed in 1772.
Civitatis, Travel Specialist, considered Cabo da Roca one of the 8 most beautiful lighthouses in the world , Nº2!
( Nº1 was Trinidad Lighthouse, California & Nº6 was Farol de Santa Marta in Cascais 🙌)
With nice walking shoes 👟 it’s a great opportunity to walk along some hiking trails that will lead you to the unique Praia da Ursa Beach (1km, mentioned in Michelin guide as: “one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.”) and to Praia da Adraga ⛱️ (2km, just a bit further but with a Fantastic Fish Restaurant 🦐 🐟)
Warning 🤳: The cliffs around Cabo da Roca are slippery and the strong winds are unpredictable! Please never go beyond the fences to take a photo 📸
