Sephardic Heritage Trip to Spain 2014/5774: Day 4 - Gibraltar

We started the day with a long bus ride to the cozy territory of Gibraltar. We then dropped off our luggage at the Eliott hotel and started our tour of Gibraltar. We saw Europa Point, which is the southernmost point of Gibraltar and is where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean and where Europe and Africa are at their closest point. We then continued on to the stalagmite and stalactite caves filled with natural rock formations. The tour was capped off with a visit to the apes of Gibraltar. There, free roaming monkeys crawled and interacted with us. We look forward to having a beautiful Shabbat here in the tight-knit Jewish community of Gibraltar. ~Shaya Tawil
