Easy to reach the lighthouse with the public transportation. Its nice for some pictures, but generally windy, cold (also during high summer) and the water is really dirty.

A very nice place to visit if you're into watching the sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It's usually with lots of people and of you go by car it can be difficult to park

First of all, I would 100% recommend a trip here - for me, it took about 2 hours total (from the time I left Porto and then got back). It was stunning, the way the waves crash over the pier was beautiful and the walk...More
