Leave Europe behind and explore “The Gateway to Africa” – Tanger. An important trading post for centuries. Passing the Mount Moses on the way to Ceuta – a spanish city in Africa.
The Gibraltar – Africa Tour
Taking off from Gibraltar airport we pass the Rock on the east side facing the old water catchment construction. A landmark seen on far distance.
Climbing to a safe altitude you get a good view of the Algeciras bay and you can see all the way to the Atlantic ocean. Under way we pass Tarifa and the famous kite surfing beaches. Next we soon see the change in water color and Tanger – the historical “Gateway to Africa” appears.
On the way the fairly new top modern port of Tanger presents itself.
From Tanger we set course towards Mount Moses – which together with The Gibraltar Rock form the two pillars of Hercules. Below the mountain , aslo known as the “Sleeping Lady”, is the city of Ceuta. This is Spanish territory in the middle of Morocco. The 6m high barbed wired double fence is surrounding this tiny spanish city and more than 1100 spanish guards are required to protect Spain in Africa from illegal emigrants.
This part of Africa, from Tanger in the west towards the east is the anceint land of Maghreb – Where the sun sets. Historically a important islamic Califat which included a large part of Spain for centuries.
