cabo da roca
After visiting the Dom Quixote windmill we headed to the light house of Cabo da Roca, which is the most western tip of all of Europe. 16th-century poet Luis de Camões described the place as “where the land ends and the sea begins”. The light house and viewpoint are on the top of a steep cliff and it is always insanely windy. We tried to take some pictures and my t-shirt was literally being blown off of my torso.
After joining all the tourists and snapping some photos we headed even further up to another viewpoint at an old abandoned sanctuary, Santuário da Peninha. We had a similar view as we did from the windmill, expect from here we got a full 360-view and, being at a far higher point, we could see the entire coastline that surrounds Cascais, even vaguely spotting my house.
I accidentally had my camera on the wrong setting without having noticed until later, therefore the awkwardly bright cyan in the sky. Regardless of the colour-coding in the pictures this beautiful view will forever be engraved in my brain.
