About Cabo De São Vicente
Cabo de São Vicente (the Cape of Saint Vincent) is the most southwesterly extremity of Europe. This wind blasted and storm pounded headland is just what visitors expect, for what was considered, up until the 14th century, the end of the known world. The jagged cliffs rise 60 meters from the ferocious seas and high above guarding the busy shipping lines is one of Europe’s brightest lighthouses that can be seen 60 miles away. Henry the Navigator, the father of Portugal’s 17th century Golden Age of Discovery, supposedly spent much of his time based here planning voyages that mapped and explored the unknown region of western Africa. Cabo Sao Vincente is a wild, windswept and remote landscape, and tourists who visit won’t be disappointed.
