When most transit enthusiasts think of Portugal, the first thing that comes to mind is likely the famous “Remodelado” trams in Lisbon. However, transit fans who enjoy traveling to “extremes” should consider heading out to Sintra. Not only is Sintra a popular destination for a day trip from Lisbon easily accessible by the Lisbon’s commuter rail system, you can take Scotturb route 403 out to Cabo de Roca, which is continental Europe’s westernmost point. Many come out to this vista to watch the sun set in to the Atlantic Ocean, an unusual sight for people who live in North or South America. Seeing as Cabo de Roca is the westernmost point in continental Europe, the 403 stop at Cabo de Roca, less than 1000 feet from the ocean itself, is Europe’s westernmost bus stop. If neither the thought of seeing the sun set in to the Atlantic nor using the westernmost bus stop in all of Europe interests you as things to do if you ever find yourself in Portugal, you’re missing out.
