We are in Portugal at Cabo da Roca, not very far from Lisbon. Cabo da Roca is not only the westernmost point of Portugal but also it’s the westernmost point of Europe. The wind is very strong and you can hear it in the video.
Cabo da Roca is at 38 ° 47 ‘north latitude, and 9 ° 30’ west longitude. Cabo da Roca is the European continent’s westernmost point. The poet Luís Vaz de Camões defined this place as “Aqui … Onde a terra se acaba eo mar começa ….” (in Os Lusíadas, Canto VIII), in English here … where the earth ends and the sea it starts. This sentence is written upon the stone monument, which celebrates the place’s particularity.
Cabo da Roca is a cape located 140 meters above sea level, on the Portuguese coast, in the hamlet of Colares of the municipality of Sintra, in the district of Lisbon.
