With Christopher here we decided to walk the rock. Up from the marina, past the botanical gardens and then the long hike to the entrance to the park. Here is a memorial to the rock as one of the pillars of Hercules.
From here it was an easy climb to the first attraction, St Michael’s Cave. Formed by rainwater leaking into the limestone they are very old. Both neanderthal (40,000 years ago) and early human (15 – 20,000 years ago) artifacts have been found within the cave structures. The upper chamber has been turned into an auditorium.
