  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    This most southwestern cape is remembered as the place where D. Henrique dreamed with the discoveries of the unknown world, and from where he controlled the movement of the boats. Hardly discussed the buildings and general treatment of the space to touristic purposes (I'm among those who don't like it) it is a mandatory visit between swims.

    As a matter of fact Sagres is an important reference to all the Portuguese, for the symbolic role it played in the discoveries.

    The use of the place doesn't make justice to it, and in your visit, you will be more attracted by the landscape, and the sights of the steep promontories and wild beaches than for the references in display.

    "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 (well, our old history in school, during the nationalist dictatorship, was so full of such theatrical references, that we easily forget that the real origin of the navigators should have been Lagos).
  • The fortress You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko   Solopes  

    It must be impressive seen from the sea, but from the land side it seems no more than a strong wall. It is not the look what justifies the visit, but what it means to the world and the middle age development (and the sights, of course).

    Don't go there without reading something about Portuguese discoveries - You'd risk to miss the meaning of the place.

    Entering the fortress leads you to... a small disappointment - after a long walk, a very large space full of history, is... empty.

    There is not much to see inside, and unless you are well acquainted with Portuguese history, and understand the importance of the site, you may get frustrated. The place's value doesn't depend on what it is and contains, but on what it means and remembers.

    In my last visit I noticed a new effort to give life to the place - good idea!

  • Fishing You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    It must be an excellent location to a big catch.

    That's the only way to explain the hard work of those men, that, from the top of the cliffs inside the fort of Sagres, show their skills, fishing and sliding a basket down the line to catch the fish, almost invisible at that distance.

    That's the reason why each fisherman has always a group of curious and interested observers.
    A few years ago, one of them felt down - take care!
  • Nossa Senhora da Graça You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko   Solopes  

    This modest church located inside the fortress was built in the 16Th century, replacing the original built by Henry the navigator one century before. Inside, only a Baroque retable deserves reference.

  • The beaches You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    Very beautiful views, with wonderful beaches sheltered by high cliffs invite us to swim.

    That may not be a very good idea - the sea is rougher than eastbound, and the water is colder, sometimes two or more degrees.

    If there is always someone fishing, I never saw anyone swimming, which means that it may be the best sport in the area.
  • S Vicente cape You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: bendecko  
    There are good views of S. Vicente cape from Sagres. Or, if you prefer, there are good views of Sagres from S. Vicente cape.

    The high cliffs protect a few secluded and inviting beaches composing a beautiful landscape, but the water...

    Anyway, if you travel to Algarve, Sagres is a "must see"

    • Espiche
      20.23 Km from Sagres
      Espiche is a village in Algarve near Praia da Luz in Portugal. The town has seen major developments since the 80's, with the increase of the tourism industry in the region.

In the summer months the town has the most of its economic activity, and also most of the housing space occupied by tourists.
