Cabo da Roca

The Cabo da Roca lies on the Atlantic coast west of Lisbon in the municipality of Sintra. It is the westernmost point of the European continent, and thus forms the counterpart to Cape Spears near St. John's, Newfoundland.

The rocks fall 140 m steeply down and provide a home for a wide variety of plants and birds.
