#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Gibraltar
Offering a glimpse of Africa on a clear day, Europa Point sits at the gateway between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic on the southernmost tip of the peninsula. Apart from taking in the scenic views of Moroccan mountains and Spanish coastal towns, visit one the area's notable buildings, such as the 15th-century Catholic chapel or the monument to a World War II Polish general. Most of the other buildings--including a lighthouse, underground well, and military battery--date from the 19th century.

    We wanted to go there on foot, following the road. But nothing is done to pedestrians in Gibraltar. No sidewalks or very little... Signs of fragmentary ultra indication and on arrival at the end of two hours of walking, nothing! Ample parking, an old Cannon, a naughty lighthouse. Do not waste your day. Stay in Spain where there are so many beautiful things to admire and observe the rock by far.
