This is a must trip as well,from the port in Algeciras you can catch the ferry over to Morocco we did a guided tour and im so glad we did as it was such a culture shock i think i would have got lost.We caught the fast ferry which only took about 50 minutes.The tour takes you to a local market,a medina also the dreaded carpet shops arrr!!but is well worth a visit.
This is well worth a trip as its so close to Algeciras,you can catch the number nine bus from the bus station which costs 1.66 euros(one way)to La Linea and then just walk across the border to Gibralta but don't forget to take your passport with you.We did this trip several times its about a 40 minute drive from Algeciras,quicker if you go by taxi but alot more expensive.
There is a daily market in Algeciras near the Town center,outside you can see the locals selling their produce of fruit,lace and clothes and inside the market there are lots of stalls selling meat and fish.There is also a big weekly market on a Tuesday.
The park in Algeciras is so peaceful,lots of people were sat reading and watching the world go by.There are some lovely trees and shrubs a fountain and statues.Its a nice break from the town center.There are also toilets there as well.
In the center of the Plaza Alta is the most tiniest church i have ever come across,i just had to go in.It was beautiful with a norrow spiral staircase and beautiful architecture.There is a box inside where you can pay 2 cents to light a candle.
This church is well worth a visit,it was built in the 18th century and houses the images of the patron saints of Algeciras,the inside is stunning unfortunately i couldn't take a picture of the inside as there was a wedding going on,but we sat and watched the service which was lovely.
Plaza Alta was the nicest and most "authentic" spot in Algeciras. All in all, a nice place to stroll around for an hour in Algeciras!!
