Most western part of continental Europe. This was in fact where the world ended for centuries. Definitely worth a drive. Absolutely gorgeous.

It's always worth reaching one of the extreme points of land. Westernmost, Southernmost, highest, lowest... Etc. Something takes over at these places. Something wild.

Awesome views. But come when it is sunny to see the westernmost point of Europe. Beyond the Atlantic lies New York. Feel the gusts of winds through your hair and the high waves dwon the cliff.

beautiful cliff, emerging 140 meters above Atlantic; It is said to be the most westerly point of mainland Europe.

Check the weather before you go, if you want to go there for the sun set, don't go too early. If it's windy, it's quite chilly and not soo nice to stay there for too long. Stunning view!

Peaceful and inspiring place. Made it just before the sunset, it was amazing. A must-see if you're planning to visit Lisbon/Cascais/Sintra, etc... Check the weather before you go though !
