Cabo da Roca

Sintra, Portugal

This is the westernmost point of continental Europe.
A thrill to see this as we really didn't expect to be heading in this direction.
Our final day in Sintra, before heading to Lisbon, we decided to take a hop on hop off bus ride.
After seeing Monserrate we made a loop around to head to the Capuchos Convent.
The ride took us right past this spot.
This shot is from the top of an open bus while it was moving.
