The South Side

At the tip of Gibraltar, Europa Point looks over the Mediterranean and the bay from which Nelson’s body was brought ashore after the Battle of Trafalgar. The large mosque at Europa Point was a gift to Gibraltar from the King of Saudi Arabia, King Fahd bin Abdulaziz al-Saud. Also worth seeing are the 100 tonne gun and Parson’s Point, a fascinating WW2 military post where you can easily imagine the conditions under which the soldiers were forced to exist whilst defending Gibraltar.
