This small adventure starts along the coast of Cascais, until the Praia do Guincho beach; continues amidst a fantastic landscape between Serra de Sintra and the Atlantic Ocean; and it ends in Cabo da Roca. Here all you have to do is enjoy the unique view and taste delicious food in a typical restaurant. 

Historical records indicate that there was a Fort on Cabo da Roca, in the 17th century, that played an important part in guarding the entrance in Lisbon's harbour, forming a defensive line along the coast. Today we can find its traces, and the big Lighthouse that still playes an important role for navigation.
