I spend a lot of time slagging Algeciras. Frankly, the place deserves it. But there is no denying that the surrounding region, known as Andalucía, is worth a visit. It has beaches, mountains and beautiful landscapes. The culture is rich and varied. The climate? Spectacular. At least by Canadian standards.
Over seven million foreign tourists per year come here for a reason. Andalucía I mean. The only reason they come to Algeciras is to catch a boat to Morocco.
So, to show that both Andalucía and I have a positive side, here is the latest tourism video from the regional government.
So, did you fall for the hard sell? Are you coming to visit me? We could go for tapas. You could get your very own life-sized ceramic Jesus as a souvenir. I’ll even introduce you to some of Algeciras’ finest citizens, sleeping in the plaza.
