Gibraltar - Europa Point
|Europa Point in front of the mosque.
We arrived and were able to catch a glimpse of the Straight of Gibraltar and Algeciras, Spain, and also across the water we were able to clearly see Morocco and Ceuta*. Absolutely stunning views. Windy, very windy, but well worth it. We saw the rock behind the Ibrahim-al-Ibrahim Mosque. There is a nice playground and a cafeteria which gave us a place to eat lunch and let Eliora play for a while.
There was a call to prayer while we were there which initially frightened me a bit, then we realized what it was and laughed. There are no mosques with calls for prayer on speakerphones where I come from. This probably means we need to visit Morocco!

Another Note: Coming from the USA we don't really know much about Ceuta--our taxi driver from Gibraltar had never visited and he was only an hour away. While we didn't get to see it, nor will we this visit, it was fascinating to learn that it was Spanish territory in Africa.
