La línea de los ingleses

 La línea de los ingleses – the ‘English Railway’ is a trip through some of the most beautiful countryside in Andalucía. The little three-carriage train winds its way past some of the attractive ‘white towns’ of the region and through the spectacular scenery of the Los Alcornocales and Grazalema Natural Parks.

Algeciras

Algeciras is a coastal town in Cádiz province. It is not the sort of place to linger unless you like industrial towns – and Arab things like mosques and mint
tea! 
I have been there twice. The first time was to catch a boat to Morocco so all I saw was the quayside. The second occasion I did see more of the town but found it rather drab. 
It does have an attractive central square – Plaza Alta. Tiles, depicting scenes from Don Quixote, adorn the benches and walls surrounding the central fountain and cafes and bars line the perimeter of this delightful square.
