    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Cape Saint Vincent, Estrada Cabo de Sao Vicente En 268, Sagres 8650-390 Portugal

    A headland in south westernmost point of Portugal and of mainland Europe.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Pass By: Fortaleza de Sagres, 8650-360, Sagres Portugal

    The 16th century bulwark-like fortress was severely damaged during the Great Earthquake of 1755. It was restored in the mid 20th century, but there is still a 16th-century turret present. After passing through the thick tunnel entrance, one sees a giant pebble compass rose (rosa dos ventos) of 43 m diameter.

    Pass By: Porto da Baleeira, Rua das Naus, Sagres 8650-368 Portugal

    Old docks

    Stop At: Ponta Da Piedale, M536, Lagos 8600-544 Portugal

    Consisting of yellow-golden cliff like rocks up to 20 meters high, they are one of the most famous touristic attractions of Portugal. Several grottos in Ponta da Piedade can be visited by boat. The location also contains a lighthouse, dating back to 1913.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Castelo de Silves, Rua do Castelo, Silves 8300-144 Portugal

    It's believed that the first fortifications were built upon a possible Lusitanian castro, by the Romans or Visigoths. Between the 8th and 13th centuries, the castle was occupied by the moors who expanded it, making it one of the best preserved Moorish fortifications in Portugal resulting in its classification as a National Monument in 1910.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    A few of the reviews suggest that there was a boat ride included in the trip but it wasn't listed in the possible itinerary. Is this a possibility, that is, to have a land and sea tour?
