Built over the ancient ruins of a Franciscan convent, this Lighthouse towers from vertical cliffs to guide one of the busiest shipping lanes near Cape of Saint Vincent – or “Sacred Promontory" as it was called in Roman times. It is located in extreme Southwestern Portugal – Sagres - not too far from the Gibraltar Straits.
