Standing on the Edge of Europe

Overlooking the Ocean in Portugal

Have you ever felt like you were standing on the edge of the world? This is how it felt for me when I visited the southwestern-most point of Europe in the Algarve region of Portugal.

Southwestern Point of Europe

Located just outside of a small town called Cape St. Vincent and overlooking Sagres Bay, a lighthouse signals your location on what feels like the edge of the world. This is where Christopher Columbus departed from on his journey to prove the world was not actually flat. I’m glad they got that one cleared up.

And yours truly!
