Mountain
“Gibraltar is a British self-governing oversees territory, governed by a Governor, who is the Queen's representative on the Rock and Commander-in Chief of the British Forces stationed there. Strategically positioned at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula, overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar, the rock of Gibraltar measures less than six square metres and has a population of 30,000. For such a small area, Gibraltar has a lot to offer: incredible sights, caves, rich history, natural beauty and stunning views. It is a great way to spend the day. Once you get to the Spanish border town of La Linea, you’ll need to go through customs (don’t forget to bring your passport1) and then drive across the airport runway on the actual Rock. Once on the Rock itself, you can easily visit the sights on your own, but we recommend taking one of the Rock tours organised by taxi or coach or taking the cable car. Included in the tour are the Upper Rock Nature Reserve giving magnificent views of North Africa and the meeting of the Atlantic and Mediterranean, St Michael's Cave, the Apes Den, the historic Siege Tunnels and Europa Point.

Historic Site
“Baelo Claudia is an ancient Roman town situated on the Costa de la Luz, approximately 15km north of Tarifa, next to the town of Bolonia and the beautiful Bolonia beach. The ruins of Baelo Claudia, with its impressive temple, forum and basilica, and especially the large fish-salting factory, show how important the town was in Roman times. A visit to the ruins of Bolonia combines well with a visit to the town of Tarifa and an afternoon at either the Tarifa or Bolonia beaches. For more information, please visit: www.andalucia.com ”
