From Sagres walk along the high cliffs towards the lighthouse at Cabo San Vicente the final destination for today’s walk. Enroute there will be opportunities to discover hidden beaches between the cliffs, admire views over the Atlantic, and imagine this area centuries before, when every port had a fortress and from where many ships set sail seeking new continents.

At the end of the trail give yourself time to explore the lighthouse which was built over the remains of a 16th century Franciscan convent in 1846. This lighthouse guards one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes and is one of the most powerfully lit lighthouses in Europe. A transfer back to Sagres is included.
