This is a closed old military fortress in ruins but it is worth to take the few minutes walk and go near the main gate. Continental Europe is at its southern end here. Next is Africa with many people eager to come. Fortress Europe -...More
We walked out to the Isla de Las Palomas, despite knowing it is closed to the public. The second we arrived, some fisherman was exiting the automatic gate and we slipped in - not having a clue what "personas no autorizadas sin entrada" means ;-)...More
