Europa Point, Gibraltar
Europa Point is the southernmost point of Gibraltar. When the ancient mariners from the east arrived in this region in the eighth century BC, they once again homed in on the beacon which was the Rock and were attracted to large marine caverns close to these southern platforms. The Myceneans might have sailed to the Strait as far back as the sixteenth century BC. Europa Point Lighthouse stands at the southernmost point of Gibraltar. Situated at the gateway between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean it serves as landfall and waypoint for vessels passing through the Strait. Europa point with its incredible panoramic views of the straights, North Africa, Spain and the Rock is a must see experience for all visitors to Gibraltar. Visit Gibraltar.
