Have you ever thought of a destination from where you are standing at one end of a continent and see another?
Gibraltar is one such unique place on earth ! Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory and headland, on Spain’s south coast in Europe. The Strait of Gibraltar is a narrow strait that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and separates Gibraltar and Peninsular Spain in Europe from Morocco and Ceuta (Spain) in Africa.
Ceuta is a Spanish autonomous city located on the north coast of Africa. You can look out across Ceuta’s port and, on clear days enjoy your favourite drink with stunning view of Gibraltar from the famous castle of Ceuta.
Castle Desnarigado, located just under Ceuta’s lighthouse is named after a flat-nosed Berber pirate who made the cove his home in the 1417 after escaping from an Algerian mining prison, the fort was built here in the 19th century and now houses a military museum showcasing the evolution of weapons from the 16th to 19th centuries.
Poised strategically at the jaws of Europe and Africa, Gibraltar, with its Palladian architecture and camera-hogging Barbary macaques, makes for an interesting break from Cádiz province’s white towns and tapas.
