A narrow 6.5 acre peninsula is not only a sought-after tourist destination but also a strategic link between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic, through the Gibraltar Strait linking Europe with Africa. Gibraltar truly is an amazing piece of land dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar, reaching an altitude of 426 meters. Besides this massive mountain there are narrow aisles, beautiful bays and several architectural paradoxes. Take a look at the pictures below and take you to the southernmost tip of the Pyrenean Peninsula.
