This is the most southwestern point of Europe. In the Middle Ages it was thought to be the end of the known world so the navigation school of Henry the Navigator was nearby at Sagres. This trained sailors to go out and explore. Now it has the most powerful lighthouse in Europe housed near a ruined 16th century Capuchin convent. We were grateful for its walls as it is a cold and windy spot, although this doesn't deter the fisherman both in boats and perched halfway down the cliff face.
