Madeira, Sea cliff of Cabo Girão · 18.10.2011 20:06 ¦ pilago

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Cabo Girão is a lofty sea cliff located along the southern coast of the island of Madeira. It is situated less than two kilometres west from the centre of Câmara de Lobos, between the parishes of Quinta Grande and Câmara de Lobos. A diamond-shaped sea-cliff escarpment from 560 metres (1,840 ft) to 589 metres (1,932 ft) above sea level, Cabo Girão lies between two river-valleys that flow into the Atlantic Ocean. Although brochures explain that it is the first or second highest cliff in Europe, at least five European cliffs (Hornelen at 860 metres, Cape Enniberg at 750 metres, Vixía Herbeira at 613 metres, Preikestolen at 604 metres and Slieve League at 601 metres) are higher.
