Algeciras
The Essential
Algeciras enjoyed its greatest period of splendour under Moorish rule. In the 18C, it counterbalanced British domination in the Straits of Gibraltar and in 1906 European forces carved up their spheres of influence in Morocco. Today, Algeciras is a major port and an industrial town which, despite lacking any monuments of note, has recently undergone a programme of restoration and regeneration. Despite the town's resurgence, visitors are however advised to avoid the port area at night.
