Tarifa

We will have 1:30 hours to visit the center of Tarifa.

Tarifa became an important city back in the 10th century, under the rule of Abd-al-Rahman III, when the caliph castle that we find in the historic quarter was built. The influence of the Arab period can be seen in the present appearance of the city, with narrow, winding streets. It also has other interesting monuments, such as the Gothic-Mudejar chapel of Santiago; the convent of San Francisco, and the churches of Santa María and San Mateo. This is our proposal numbers 1-6 of the following map:

Gibraltar

Gibraltar is an interesting town that belongs to the United Kingdom, so there are certain differences with the Spanish towns. This small piece of land is full of history and has great geographical and strategic importance, since centuries it is considered as one of the 2 columns of Hercules that symbolize the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea, the other column would be in North Africa , which can be seen from Gibraltar.
