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.

Sagres to Cape St. Vincent Lighthouse

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:

Portugal Algarve Beach Walk Photos

I left Faro for the Good Feeling hostel a little inland from Sagres and Lagos. The first afternoon I just walked inland a little, but finally reached the beach the next morning. In fact, I went to two beaches and saw a megalithic stone on a circular walk to the south. Here’s some photos:
