Adamastor is the name of a spirit that has had one unique appearance in history. It comes from the Cape of Good Hope and so it is known as the Spirit of the Cape of Good Hope or the Spirit from the Cape of Storms. The Portuguese poet, Luis de Camoes (1524 - 1580) described the Adamastor as an ugly thing that appeared to Vasco da Gama and foretold all the disasters of those travelling to India.
