The Mountain of Tarik or Mount Calpe are some of the legendary names by which Gibraltar is known. “The Rock”, represents one of the two columns of the myth of Hercules, the union between the two shores of the Eurafrican Territory.
Beyond the myths, Gibraltar is the melting pot of cultures present in the Strait, as well as a range of scenic and cultural attractions that we are sure will not leave you indifferent.
A guided tour of the Gorham Cave Complex (UNESCO), a walk through the dizzying Mediterranean Steps or an introduction to history through the many tunnels built during the Second World War are some of the “must” places to visit when you come to Gibraltar.
As you can imagine, its strategic location, at one end of the Bay of Algeciras, facing the Mediterranean Sea, makes it a privileged viewpoint of the whole Strait. O,Hara,s Battery, the recent “Windsor Bridge” and the “Skywalk”, are just some examples of the places, from where the visitor can enjoy some of the best views that “The Rock” offers.
