Full description
After being collected from your accommodation, you will be transported to the remote lands of Espichel Cape, the second most western cape of Europe. Your trek will then begin in the sanctuary of Espichel Cape, where you will visit the small Memory Chapel, the church, the old hostels, Casa da Ópera, the aqueduct and Casa da Água. It is a rare example of a monumental sanctuary for religious pilgrimages, was scenographically designed from the ground up, and is a religious architectural complex that is unique to Portugal. Following this part of the tour, you will walk to the north where you will be able to view the Jurassic Cliffs, which feature footprints of dinosaurs and are a location of striking beauty. After a moment of contemplation from the top of the dramatic cliffs, you will descend to one of the most primitive beaches in Europe with time to explore and wander.

Amazing experience!

We bought the tour through "Get your guide" and got quick response from André and Natasha from Lookaroundtours, who delivered the tour. Breathtaking views and amazing to see real footprints from dinosaurs! Our guide André was very knowledgeable and interested in nature, especially plants and told us a lot about the plants we passed. He also told us the history from when they build the church and more. We strongly recommend this tour with him!

Un’esperienza unica e irripetibile! Un paesaggio che ti toglie il fiato e che sprigiona un’energia piena di mistero e spiritualità. Il tour ti porta indietro nel tempo, inseguendo le orme dei dinosauri presenti in questo luogo. La guida André ci ha accompagnate con la sua jeep alla scoperta dei punti panoramici più nascosti e per questo più belli, che senza di lui non avremmo mai visto. Sono state una giornata ed un’esperienza memorabili, che consigliamo a tutti di fare. Ludovica ed Elisabetta
