Cabo da Roca souvenir certificate

For a small fee, you can buy a dated, personalized certificate at the Cabo da Roca visitor center. The certificate confirms that you "have been to Cape Roca--Sintra, Portugal--the westernmost point in continental Europe 'where the land ends and the sea begins,' where there still reigns the spirit of Faith and Adventure which took the Portuguese caravels in search of new worlds for the world."
