It seems to me that there are some severe errors in this article at the moment. First, the picture doesn't show the Cape Saint Vincent, but the Ponta del Sangres close by, and secondly the license of the picture is reported to be wrong.
Also the article begins with telling that Cape Saint Vincent also is called Cape del Sangres. The truth seems to be that they are different points on the Faros peninsula: MSN-map of the place As the geographical data are mixed up, the information about the history of the place may also be unreliable, concerning exactly which site they refere to. I don't have the knowledge or access to proper sources myself to correct these things, but somebody perhaps have visited the place? Islander(Scandinavia) 13:41, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Now it all seem to be in order, thanks to JoJan, since beginning of december. -Islander(Scandinavia) 09:46, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Correction needed The article states that in 1641 the naval battle between the Dutch and Spanish was won by the Spanish. The corresponding Wikipedia article however states that the Dutch lost 2 ships and 100 men, but the Spanish lost 2 ships and 1000 men, retreated to Cadiz and leaving the cape to the Dutch.
