The very end of Europe, at least in a southwestern sense, Cape St. Vincent brings nature and history together like few other places can. Everyone who has anyone has considered this sacred ground and it is clear why, although that also means the conflicts have been plenty. The cliffs rise dramatically out of the Atlantic Ocean with utter confidence, comfortable in their role as the first bit of land on the continent, and the views out to the sea are absolutely stunning. There is an abundance of fauna around too, with a wide variety of birds making their way here throughout the year. Are they also coming for the views? We can neither confirm nor deny that. The cape is a few kilometres northwest of Sagres.
