    Ibrahim-Al-Ibrahim Mosque

    Mary and the Mosque

    Favorite thing: Built in 1997, as a donation to the Muslim world from King Fahad of Saudi Arabia, the Ibrahim-Al-Ibrahim Mosque is set at Europa Point and can be seen for miles at sea when lit up. Unfortunately there was no time to see it during our whistle-stop tour. The mosque is open at certain times for viewing.

    Desalination Waterfall

    The Waterfall

    Favorite thing: For nearly 100 years Tallis Slopes acted as a catchment area, providing vital fresh water supplies for Gibraltar. A desalination plant now provides all the fresh water Gibraltar needs, so the slopes are being returned to their natural state. I guess this is the only visible 'waterfall' on the Rock.

    It is near to Europa Point.

    Spain in the background!

    Favorite thing: I loved standing where you can see Europe and Africa at the same time! What a beautiful view!

    Fondest memory: The whole day was fabulous! Walking across the runway, having an ape jump on my back, exploring the caves, buying souveniers, viewing africa for the first time from Europa Point, eating fish and chips and drinking a couple of pints, and doing all of this with the love of my life!!

    Europa Point Lighthouse

    Favorite thing: Located on the southern tip of Gibraltar at Europa Point, the lighthouse is still in use and its light can be seen from a distance of 30 miles.
