Sagres and Vincentine Coast Portugal Photos

The next morning I took the bus to Sagres, which is the most south-western point in Europe. It was an important place during the Portuguese Age of Discovery, with a nautical school set up there by Henry the Navigator.

After looking around Sagres I walked out to the fort (visible above the beach in photo 2) and then up the Vincentine west coast to the Cape St. Vincent lighthouse and monastery. Here’s some photos:
