  • The westernmost point in continental Europe. A beautiful view high up from the water. The sunset was lovely. Very windy, at least when my wife and I visited in February, so be prepared. There is a souvenir shop, snack bar, and restaurant on site, which was a nice reprieve from the wind.
  • Very beautiful place. Yeah at first this place is perfect view with seaside, rock mountains, high sea view point. But there was too many travelers although its working day. Very strong wind here, so be careful to take the picture. There was some checkin point nearby the main view, you need to walk a little bit to the high mountain then you will got award!
