Geologic Formation
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.

  • In small regular trips made to this site. After many years point out aspects that have improved and others who got worse. The improvement was to have placed barriers/fencing, which reduces the danger. The breathtaking view is still there, and that there is no one to spoil ... I'm sorry that the monastery is as abandoned, with all the Windows and doors closed with cement. It is a building with so much potential. Before I had a lot of life, with many craft shops, now resists, and a café. However it's always worth it for the view and the mystique of the place.

  • Where nature has built a work of art. Mountain and sea at your best. Worth a visit! Got a great viewpoint!

  • Me this place struck more than rock or Cape South-westernmost point of Europe (Sagret). No crowds of people, Ocean, wind and. .. Cathedral. There is a sense that all there organically, and you with this one on one!
