Cape Espichel is one of our tourist attractions on your tour to Sesimbra. Most of all, not only makes an enjoyable tour, much as, worth your trip to Portugal.
First of all, it stands in the southwestern headland in the Setúbal District. With high cliffs and strong winds, this region is a must-see scenery over the Atlantic Ocean. Also, it is known as an impressive wild and barren landscape.
In addition to this picture, there is a lighthouse. And a church, both standing close to the edge. Seems like both are still in use. A humble white chapel, with the deep blue ocean as its backdrop. The lighthouse dates from 1790, on the location of an ancient one from 1430.
An unconventional design for a lighthouse although very charming. The other buildings constructed, in 1900, add a kind of symmetry to the entire scenery.
The original lamp starts operating in 1790 to 1865, the lamp at that time could be detected for over 10 miles. Today the lighthouse is fully automated and can be seen for 24 miles. Also, there is no permanent lighthouse keeper.
Furthermore, this all area is isolated and many visitors describe the area as mysterious and spiritual.
After enjoying the view, look for the dinosaur fossil footprints from the Jurassic era.
In conclusion, Cabo Espichel is perfect for those tourists who appreciate nature and raw beauty.
