Where to view Gibraltar, but not visit Gibraltar?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will visit Spain this spring. After much homework, I don't think we want to spend a day in Gibraltar, but we would like a great view of this historically important geography. Does anyone have a good suggestion? We've read that there can be a good view from Algeciras, although we've also read that that city isn't very attractive.

We would probably think of a day trip from Ronda, but our itinerary is not yet set in stone. I think we'll enjoy touring that part of southern Spain in our rental car. Or maybe make a side trip from our base in Ronda to the next stop up the coast (Nerja?) Again, we just want enough time to be impressed.

(Side note: I was moved and impressed about being on the Bosphorus in Istanbul, for its beauty and place in history. I think I'll feel the same about seeing Gibraltar.)
