A bit of history you will discover on your day trip to Gibraltar from Seville
Gibraltar was the end of the known world for the Greeks; according to mythology, Hercules was the first to venture beyond the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, flanking the line formed by Mount Calpe (Rock of Gibraltar) and Mount Musa in Africa, to reach Tartessos and steal the oxen from King Geryon.
Today, The Rock, as it is popularly known, is the refuge of the only colony of monkeys in freedom living on European soil, a major tourist attraction in the area. No one who visits the nature reserve leaves without a photo with these famous inhabitants. The Cave of San Miguel is another attraction within the Rock, formed by the action of water on limestone over thousands of years, it contains numerous stalactites and stalagmites. Nowadays, fashion shows and musical performances take place in the main hall of the cave. The Great Siege Tunnels, built by the English troops in the late 18th century to resist the attack of the Spanish troops trying to regain sovereignty over Gibraltar, add a historical note to the visit.
For nature lovers, Gibraltar and its surrounding area are considered a key passage for thousands of birds migrating between Europe and Africa. March and September are perhaps the months with the highest number of birds. In the waters of the Strait, more than 15 different species of cetaceans can be spotted, including orcas, common rorquals, and bottlenose dolphins. The views from the Rock over Morocco and the Strait of Gibraltar are another highlight of the visit.
Lastly, for shopping enthusiasts, it is a perfect place. Main Street is the main street of the city, and it houses a large number of shops where you can find everything at very competitive prices due to the local tax policy.
*We share a bit of history about optional towns or visits you can add to this day trip to Gibraltar from Seville:
Vejer de la Frontera and Castellar de la Frontera, two prominent “white villages” of Andalusia, offer unique experiences imbued with charm, history, and natural beauty. Vejer, located in the hills of the province of Cadiz, stands out for its traditional Andalusian architecture, cobbled streets, and whitewashed houses. Its panoramic views and Arab influence in its design create a charming medieval atmosphere, making it a cultural gem.
On the other hand, Castellar de la Frontera, surrounded by a medieval wall and located next to the Guadarranque reservoir, offers a unique experience in a serene environment. This picturesque white village features whitewashed houses and narrow streets, with the Castle of Castellar as the highlight. The restored Arab fortress and the surrounding natural landscape add a historical and natural dimension to the visit.
Both towns provide visitors with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the authenticity of Andalusian white villages, with charming architecture, picturesque streets, and a rich cultural heritage.
