Cape Saint Vincent. Jan 22, 2017
Cape S. Vicent. Cape Saint Vincent is the most south westernly point in Europe. It takes its name from Saint Vincent; a priest martyred by the Romans. Centuries ago it was thought as the end of the world. Here it is where Henry the Navigator is believed to have set up his school of navigation in the fifteen century. At Cape Saint Vincent you can see a lighthouse built in1846. It is said it is one of the most powerful in Europe.

I enjoyed much the high cliffs and the ocean when I visited this cape.

After your visit to this place you can head to the Fortaleza de Sagres. This fortress was originally built in the 15th century and rebuilt in 1793. It was restored in the mid 20th century. It is a very large fortress. There is a nice church inside; the church of Nossa Senhora da Graca that dates from 1579. It replaces the original church of Dom Henrique of 1459.
