It surprised me to see this big rock from where you enter in Algeciras . It is a rock that is south of Spain, belonging to the UK, so the official language is English, but it was funny to see how they spoke Andaluz). Is has a side on the Algeciras Bay, the other on the Mediterranean. It is nice with the La Linea de la Concepcion. By the South, the Strait of Gibraltar, there is a crossroads that brings together North Africa south of the rock, the Mediterannean and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Over the centuries, this has been an important strategic point. Gibraltar also is one of the pillars of the Hercules towers.
