4.5/5 based on 440+ 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.
