Sagres Listed by National Geographic

Mainland Europe's south-westernmost town has been included in the National Geographic Society’s list of the world's top 10 most spectacular sea views.
National Geographic heaped much praise on Sagres saying that 'for a whiff of historical romance and swashbuckling adventure, few outlooks outclass the one at Sagres', ranking it 8th in the table.
The best way to explore the area is on foot as there is no public transportation. In the 15th century, Prince Henry the Navigator went to Sagres to found his School of Navigation in order to fulfil his quest to expand the known world’s frontiers and open a sea route to India.
The first 3 places on the list went to the Mirador Escenico at San Carlos, in Mexico, followed by Kalaupapa at Molokai in Hawaii and Cape Leeuwin in Australia.
