Cabo De Roca

Standing at the most westerly point on mainland Europe, Cabo da Roca provides an unrivalled panoramic view out over the immensity of the Atlantic Ocean. The imposing lighthouse, with its tower finished in white tiles and with a red walkway, stands out as one of the oldest in Portugal.


The Initiation Well at Quinta da Regaleira

The fairytale estate of Quinta da Regaleira is a postcard-perfect mix of Gothic, Egyptian, Moorish and Renaissance architecture. A pair of wells, called the Initiation Wells, spiral down deep within the earth, like inverted towers.
