What to see in La Linea
The city arose precisely in this place not by chance: first of all, a defensive garrison was built here on the border with the last British lands in Europe. The Spaniards are still concentrated in this place quite impressive weapons. The village arose very quickly, satisfying the needs of the military. Today, the well-being of most residents is directly dependent on Gibraltar: they either work there, or trade various goods with it, or hut tourists, among whom the peninsula is very popular. Even the most popular attraction here - the famous Gibraltar rock 426 meters high, the view of which opens from the coastal zone, does not belong to the Spaniards.
But since you arrived at the border town, take the time to get to know him:
- Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. Built in the 19th century on the central square. The reason is quite simple - the city and the garrison were growing rapidly, and the locals needed a temple. At that time, there was already a small military chapel, which could seat up to 80 people, but this was not enough.
- Torre Nueva Tower. One of the watchtowers built on the Mediterranean coast from the Guadiaro River to the border with Portugal. Refers to a complex of 44 guard towers from the time of Philip III.
- The ruins of Fort Santa Barbara. Despite the fact that the village is quite young in the framework of Spain (a little over 100 years), as far back as the 18th century, three forts were built on the territory of the Gibraltar defensive fortification line to protect against the British: San Carlos, San Felipe and Santa Barbara.
- Art Museum of Jose Cruz Herrera. Located in the historic villa of San Jose and contains a collection of 201 paintings. Dedicated to the work of the artist of the same name.
