Pose for pictures with the charming lighthouse at Gibraltar’s southernmost point. Prior to its completion in 1841, sailors were guided into this port by the light from Our Lady of Europe shrine. Dedicated to the patroness of Gibraltar, it was built over the site of a mosque after the Moors were driven out of Spain. A new mosque, inaugurated in 1997, is the southernmost mosque in continental Europe.
