Full description
After being collected from your accommodation, you will be transported to the remote lands of Espichel Cape, the second most western cape of Europe.

Your trek will then begin in the sanctuary of Espichel Cape, where you will visit the small Memory Chapel, the church, the old hostels, Casa da Ópera, the aqueduct and Casa da Água. It is a rare example of a monumental sanctuary for religious pilgrimages, was scenographically designed from the ground up, and is a religious architectural complex that is unique to Portugal.

Following this part of the tour, you will walk to the north where you will be able to view the Jurassic Cliffs, which feature footprints of dinosaurs and are a location of striking beauty. After a moment of contemplation from the top of the dramatic cliffs, you will descend to one of the most primitive beaches in Europe with time to explore and wander.
