    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Sagres is close to the most southerly western point of Europe known as Cape St. Vincent. The legend of the martyr Saint Vincent is that his relics were mysteriously transported by ravens from the Holy Land to the Cape and subsequently guarded by them. In 1173 the ravens reputedly then moved the relics to Lisbon where they remain to this day.

    Sagres - Portugal
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Sagres occupies a special place in Portuguese history - it was the nest of the discoveries. A few signs still remain, but it is more important the symbolic references than the site itself.

    "The end of the western world" in the antiquity, became the starting point for the new one.

    The (today) empty space shouldn't be that empty, and it is easy to imagine prince Henrique controlling from the cliffs the movements of ships coming and going.

    The fort

    Favorite thing: The town is very small and I am not even sure that we had seen the town of Sagres but we did make it to the fort.

    The fort is a very nice place to walk around and it has a very informative museum.
