Exploring Around Algeciras, Spain

When we arrived at the APMM container terminal in Algeciras, Spain, the weather was good  to explore the sights around. Algeciras is an industrial port, and the gateway to Gibraltar, Tangier, Ceuta and other neighboring areas.
From the ship's bridge wing , we can see Gibraltar and passed by it going in and out of the port.
The Paco de Lucia monument is found at the round about at the junction of Paseo Victoria and Calle Ponce de Leon.
A quick snap in front of the Town Hall of Algeciras.
The Archaeological park of the Merinies  walls in front of Maria Cristina Park was in the middle of the shopping district of the  Old town.
Passed by this statue along the streets of the old  shopping district.
While walking around we passed by the historic building of Hotel Sevilla.
The Kursaal building of Algeciras is the work of artist Guillermo Pérez Villalta and architect Enrique Salvo located in the Paseo del Rio de la Miel, in the Old Village in the city. The building Kursaal or Congress Center Rio de la Miel , was opened in 2007 after a decade of work. The Kursaal has become headquarters Center Permanent Relations with the Maghreb and the Two Shores Foundation , an agency of the provincial government whose function is to promote relations between the two shores of the Strait of Gibraltar by holding various cultural activities.
It was indeed a breezy afternoon  spent roaming at Paseo del Rio de la Miel.

  1. Spain is an amazing region to visit. I like to visit such kinds of places round the world. I visited this region few days ago before my niagara falls trip with my friends. During this trip we have seen the "EuroTrip" film. It is a story of four friends that take off on an 1800 mile road trip to retrieve an illicit tape mistakenly mailed to a girl friend.
