As described by Luís de Camões, Portugal’s biggest poet, this is the point where the “land ends and the sea begins”.

If you’re passing by Sintra you ought to come to the symbolic Roca Cape, ahead of the village of Azóia in Sintra.

At this cape, apart from the 1772 lighthouse located at 165 meters above the sea level, you might take pictures in front of the local monument and even bring home a diploma proving your passage through this point on the local visitor’s centre. Here you might also find a souvenirs shop, a coffee shop and toilets.
