    La Linea de la Concepcion

    by bugalugs Written Oct 16, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are quite a few good beaches here, water sports available, golf courses. There is a tourist bus which runs daily around the area. There are also old bunkers which can be viewed on guided tours.
    There is also a big shopping mall called Gran Sur which also has a cinema complex and free activities for children.
    When we went into La Linea though a lot of the shops seemed to be closed, whether it was a closing day or siesta time I am not sure but it looks as if the town areas are being done up and had some nice little shops.
    I think the pic I have put on here is Plaxa Cruz Herrera Square

    La Linea de la Concepcion

    by bugalugs Updated Oct 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Across the border into Spain this town is called La Linea. If you turn to the right as you go over the border and follow the coast road it is a bit run down although it does have a long beach. A bit of renovation wouldnt go amiss.
    As you go across the border into La Linea the first thing you see is a McDonalds but also there is a Tourist Information Office there.This photo of the statue of a man and a bicycle is across the border near the tourist information.

    Estapona - Spain

    by bugalugs Written Oct 10, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Estapona is situated on the Mediterranean and a popular tourist resort. We drove there from Gibraltar, walked along the beach, had a paddle, and a drink at a bar on the sands, then explored the town. Some lovely little streets, quaint houses. A lot of construction work though seemed to be going on along the front road and turning up to look at the sky it was full of cranes. Not the bird variety but the building variety, it seems that apartment blocks are springing up everywhere!
    I would like to post a photograph here but unfortunately my beloved husband forgot the camera!

    Castellar de la Frontera - Andalucia

    by bugalugs Written Oct 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Only a small village but so interesting its as if time has stood still! Winding cobbled streets, flowers in tubs, trees and one of the first things I noticed was a Taverna! I think it was compulsary to go on and have a beer - cheers :-)
    The floors were stone and the tables were beer barrels and I think there was only 4! so only a tiny place.

  • 100 Ton Gun

    by BleedOrange Written Jun 28, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To my dismay, the 100 ton gun was not on top of the Rock as I had expected. While the Upper Rock Nature Reserve ticket will get you admission, the gun is actually a good 15-20 minute walk from the base of the cable car. If you're a history buff like myself, the walk is well worth it... Included is a small exhibit that explains the gun's history, construction, and firing mechanisms. The gun has an amazing 8 mile range, but by the time it was completed it had already become obsolete and was never fired in battle. The gun itself is a monster, and must have been an intimidating site for passing ships.

    La Linea

    by CliffClaven Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If the unrelenting diet of pints of bitter and stolid British pub grub begins to pall, head over the border - don't forget to ask the Gibraltar official nicely for a cute rock-shaped passport stamp - to La Linea, where the attraction, apart from gassy Spanish beer in European wimp-sized glasses, is one of Spain's best bullfighting museums. Olé!

    Gibraltar Senior Citizens Social Club

    Wandering around the streets of Gibraltar, you may find something for everyone, including a seniors social club, who seem to like their Heineken. Keep your eyes open.
