"Pillars of Hercules" Statues / Monuments / Museums Tip by Airpunk
Statues / Monuments / Museums, Gibraltar: 29 reviews and 74 photos
In the ancient world, the rock of Gibraltar was believed to be one of the “Pillars of Hercules”, called “Mons Calpe”. The other one is said to be Monte Hacho, called “Mons Abile”. According to ancient mythology, they support the world. Together they are said to form a gate to the Mediterranean, which is depicted in several documents, including the Spanish coats of arms, throughout the centuries.
Directions: The monument is located at Jew’s gate. Combine that with other things to do there, for example the Mediterreanean steps or the Jewish cemetery. Check out my “Jew’s Gate” tip for that.
