Cabo Espichel, Sesimbra

(4.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Take in the impressive view at Cabo Espichel, a cape with towering cliffs looking out over the Atlantic Ocean. A lighthouse and a church (Santuário de Nossa Senhora do Cabo Espichel) stand close to the edge and are still in use. After you have your fill of the view, look for the dinosaur fossil footprints in the Jurassic strata. Stop at the on-site cafe for a chance to rest your feet.

  • Very nice views on coast and rock formations. You can walk and enjoy the unspoiled nature and of the mighty Atlantic Ocean.

  • A nice place, a former monastery unfortunately where all parts of life have been completely walled up, a chapel closed to the public outside of cults, but bodies of buildings which are beautiful to see, typical architecture. A beautiful point of view for a superb sunset.
