PORTUGAL: Cabo da Roca (cape) HD

Cabo da Roca is a cape which forms the westernmost extent of mainland Portugal and continental Europe.

The cape is located within the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, 42 kilometres west of the city of Lisbon and in the southwest of Sintra.

Around Cabo da Roca, cliffs are more than 100 metres in height, and cut into crystalline rocks. Much of the vegetation on this cape is low-lying and adapted to saltwater and windy conditions. Many migratory and marine birds roost temporarily along the cliffs and protected coves of the coastal area.
