An interesting hiking route that begins at La Línea de la Concepción to meet one of the few border crossings that currently exist in Europe. History and nature fuse in this beautiful journey that will leave a lasting memory in your mind.
The route begins at La Línea, from where we shall head towards the border crossing in order to pass the customs. Once reaching the British colony, we shall head towards Main Street, set in Gibraltar’s historical center, but before we need to cross its international airport’s landing field. Once in Main Street we shall begin the ascension of the so-called rock, leaving aside Moro’s Castle (el Castillo del Moro) to burst into the conservation area.
Spectacular views and monkeys, monkeys everywhere, will be our companions until we reach the summit of one of Hercules’ Columns.
We shall descend through the Mediterranean Steps, reaching Jews’ Gate and from there we shall head again towards Main Street, though before we shall pass by Trafalgar’s Cemetery.
Returning to Main Street and to finish our journey we shall have some time to visit the local shops or take a break drinking a cold pinta at one of its numerous terraces.
