The fortress of the 17th century, the lighthouse of the 19th century and the cliffs up to 60 meters high are sufficient reasons for a visit. The cape at the most southwestern point of Europe is also one of the most beautiful spots in the world to watch the sunset.
The most commonly observed species of small cetaceans are the Common Dolphin, Bottlenose Dolphin and Boto throughout most of the year. Other species may also be sighted, including Risso’s Dolphins, Striped Dolphins and Killer Whales. Occasionally, we also see whales on their migration route. The most frequent species, sightings of which increased in 2012, were the Dwarf Sperm Whale and Fin Whale.
