lighthouse Ponta de Sagres

Beacon Ponta de Sagres in February, 2008. The tower stands on the southeast one of both capes in the most southwest point of Europe. Because the headland completely acted as a fort, one has to accept the entry liable for costs recently into the fort to visit the lighthouse.
In the second picture the lighthouse Cabo de Sao Vicente on the other cape is to be seen on the right in the background.
