Estepona, located in a privileged enclave, captivates its visitors in every corner. Its renovated old town, one of the most beautiful in Andalusia, offers the tourist the possibility of enjoying a real urban garden, “The Garden of the Costa del Sol“. Its network of white streets, adorned with colorful pots full of flowers, give it the essence of a coastal Andalusian village. It preserves its customs and traditions and has made them coexist in total harmony with its more modern and tourist aspect.
Marbella has centuries of history, of cultures that have left their mark on the entire municipality and especially in the historic centre, where we find easily detectable Roman, Arab and Christian remains that are magnificently preserved. The origin of the word Marbella is subject to interpretation by historians and specialized philologists. The Catholic Monarchs granted Marbella its coat of arms by means of a Royal Decree given in Barcelona in 1493.
This typical Andalusian village with its whitewashed streets and trellised balconies, situated on a natural watchtower, jealously guards the remains of its ancient settlements. The ruins of the Roman city of Carteia (2nd century B.C.) are especially important, with structures, walls, towers, streets, a forum and houses still standing. The current population arises as a result of the capture of Gibraltar, when its inhabitants had to abandon it and seek refuge in other areas. Some went to the Ermita de San Roque and there founded San Roque.
El munincipio se compone de tres núcleos principales de población, siendo Manilva el centro más importante; aparte de dichos nucleos se encuentran varias urbanizaciones como el Puerto de la Duquesa que poco a poco estan convirtiendo el munincipio de Manilva en una pequeña ciudad costera. Al este se encuentra el munincipio de Estepona, que fue un puerto tradicional pesquero y que actualmente es una ciudad turística, y al norte nos podemos encontrar con Casares, que ofrece un espectacular paisaje desde su localización.
In the Strait of Gibraltar, where the Mediterranean and the Atlantic meet, is Algeciras, a city almost unknown to beach tourism, but which has a lot to offer.
In this city of Cadiz Paco de Lucia was born. Algeciras is modern, cosmopolitan and very active culturally. Here you can enjoy the sea as in the best beach destinations and it has a natural richness that will not leave you indifferent.
Situated on a plain overlooking the Bay of Algeciras, La Línea de la Concepción is one of the youngest cities in Spain, barely a century old. Perhaps the fact that it borders Gibraltar is the most characteristic of this modern and lively city. The origin of the city is linked to a series of fortifications, known as the Línea de Contravalación, which was built by Felipe V during the sieges of Gibraltar in the 18th century, thus preventing the passage through the isthmus that links it to the Rock. In 1913 King Alfonso XIII granted it the title of city, thus ceasing to depend on San Roque.
Gibraltar was known in antiquity as the promontory or Mount Calpe, one of the two mythical columns of Hercules, and later renamed in memory of General Táriq ibn Ziyad, who led the landing of the forces of the Umayyad Caliphate of Walid I in 711. It was occupied in 1704 by an Anglo-Dutch squadron in support of the pretender Charles III of Spain during the War of the Spanish Succession, at the end of which it was ceded to the British Crown in application of the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713.
Campo de Gibraltar is located in the southernmost part of the Peninsula and Andalusia, southeast of the province of Cadiz. Its frontier character between two continents (Europe-Africa), its enclave between two seas (Atlantic-Mediterranean) and the presence of the colony of Gibraltar, make the region one of the strategic territories of Europe. It is made up of the municipalities of ALGECIRAS, CASTELLAR DE LA FRONTERA, JIMENA DE LA FRONTERA, LA LINEA DE LA CONCEPCIÓN, LOS BARRIOS, SAN ROQUE AND TARIFA
