portugal: cape sagres

On our honeymoon five years ago, Jeff and I visited Santa Maria di Leuca, or "the end of the world"; this is the southernmost spot in Italy, considered at one point to be the furthermost known land. We visited a similar location in the Algarve - a windy plateau known as Cape Sagres. Famous for being the departure point of many an exploration, Henry the Navigator built a school for explorers on this spot in the 15th century.
