Come to Lisbon, I believe there is a place you must not miss, that is, called Cabo Roca, one of the 50 most worthwhile places in the world.
Coka is located at 38 degrees 47 minutes north latitude, 9 degrees 30 minutes west longitude, 40 kilometers away from Lisbon. It is a narrow cliff near the Atlantic Ocean in Portugal, about 140 meters above sea level. Pull the western end of the mountain.
It is not only the westernmost point of Portugal, but also the westernmost point of the entire Eurasia. There is a red lighthouse and a cross facing the Atlantic on the cliff. The monument is written in Portugal with a famous saying: The land ends here, and the sea begins with Sri Lanka. It is a famous sentence written by Qu Yuan Kammons of Portugal.
Coke angle is very strong, so be sure to wear one more, or you may get a cold. There is also a steep cliff, many of which are not fenced, please be careful.
1, not far from Lisbon, you can take the train from the Rossio train station in Lisbon to the town of Sintra, about 40 minutes, a lot of trips, about 30 minutes One class. Then take the 403 at the Sintra train station to the destination and get to Cabo da Roca.
2, Rossio train station to Sintra town train 2.5 euros one way, in fact, you can buy a 24-hour traffic card in Lisbon, and then recharge the 10.5 euro, you can take the train to Sintra for free. Buy a 24-hour bus ticket in the town of Sintra, you can take the bus at will, this is a good deal, plus a card fee of 15.5 euros, free to visit Cabo da Roca.
Passing through the fairytale of Sintra, all the way to the Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of Eurasia. Walk to the end of the cliff, "the land stops here, the sea begins in Sri Lanka", the salty and humid sea breeze of the Atlantic Ocean comes on the scene, and the atmosphere is like a world.
It is best to be able to drive directly from Lisbon, almost 30+km, more than an hour to open. If you don't drive, you can take a bus from Sintra, but it's not a good time to control. Bus routes can be directly searched by Googlemap
Because of the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, the wind in Cabo da Roca can be described as 360 degrees without dead ends, even if the summer is also fried chicken cold, it is recommended to bring a thin jacket to protect the cold, really To keep out the cold!
Where to take a good look
I prefer the cliff facing the right hand side of the sea, especially when I see foreign tourists hiking to the edge of the cliff, you can feel the hugeness of nature and humans at that moment. The small size, there is a lot of emotion in the strong contrast. We also followed up to the edge of the cliff, and many weeds on the road were quite stabbing and need attention.
Photos are really not enough to express the shock that you see with your own eyes. Although it is said to be a punch card, it is worth a visit.
Cape Rocca: the westernmost point of continental Europe.
Some people say that this is the place where life must go once.
The famous poem of the Portuguese poet Carmons: "Onde a terra acaba e o mar comea". Because of this sentence, I not only went once - the first time was sunset, the second was sunny morning. The hovering of the
Atlantic is enough to reminiscent of the Portuguese fleet that once smashed the sea.
