Full description
Start your tour early and head for the Cape of St. Vincent, known by the Romans as Promontorium Sacrum in honor of Saturn. Arrive at the southwestern end of Europe, a picturesque scene. See the red lighthouse that shelters a small museum of the maritime discoveries.

Proceed to Sagres, known for Portuguese maritime expansion. Observe the amazing coves on the ocean, vestiges of ancient civilizations and old ruins. Delight yourself with the landscape and the infinite blue covering the skyline. Discover the Fortress of Sagres where Prince Henry the Navigator spent the late years of his life contemplating the unknown ocean.

Afterwards go for a walking tour with your guide and explore the old city with its medieval walls that transport us to other times, where some of the first navigators departed from.
