Kabo de Sankta Vincento

8.2/10

La Kabo de Sankta Vincento estas kabo en suda Portugalio (Algarvo). Ĝi estas la plej sud-okcidenta loko de Eŭropo.

La speciala situo de la kabo estis konata jam al romianoj, kiuj nomis ĝin "Promontorium Sacrum" (sankta antaŭmonto) kaj ĝin dediĉis al la dio Saturno. La helena verkisto Strabono, kiu vivis ĉirkaŭ la epoko, skribis, ke ĝi estas la plej okcidenta loko ne nur de Eŭropo, sed de la tuta loĝata Tero.

La vojon inter la kabo kaj la cetero de la kontinento baras kastelo Sagres, kiu estas nomita laŭ la proksima urbo Sagres. Sur la kabo troviĝas lumturo vizitebla por turistoj.

Ĉe la kabo okazis pluraj historiaj bataloj, la eble plej konata je la 14-a de februaro 1797 inter angla kaj hispana ŝiparoj.

Really picturesque view from the point! Good parking with plenty of free spaces at any time + small Lighthouse museum and free excursion each Wednesday (three times a day). I also recommend you to visit nearby WW I Fort!

Cabo de São Vicente, situated near Sagres, is the most south-western point of the European continent. The lighthouse is very nice and you can get your "Letzte Bratwurst vor Amerika" over there!
