Cabo da Roca - Westernmost point of Europe and Portugal (mainland)

As one of the Cardinal points of mainland Europe, Cabo de Roca, or Cape Rock, is a true travelers challenge Mostpoint. The Romans called this travel challenge Magnum Promontorium and as sailing flourished, the sailors started to call this point Roca Lisbon. Aptly named because it is a cliff that rises from the waters of the Atlantic Ocean emerging at a height of 40 m above sea level at only some 40 km away from the portugese capital. Only a lighthouse and a tourist shop break the immensity of the landscape that the poet Luis de Camões defined as the place where the land ends and the sea begins. Formerly it was thought that the westernmost point of the mainland European continent was Finisterre in Galicia, Spain, but this is the true one, the Pointa Mais Occidental.

It is not the westernmost point of Portugal nor Europe including the islands. That one is situated on the Isle of Flores, Azores, that also forms part of Portugal and is another Mostpoint.
