At Europa Point, the southernmost point in Gib, you can stare across to North Africa and the mountain of Jebel Musa
which along with Gibraltar's Rock makes up the two ancient Pillars of Hercules.
Nonetheless, the traditional location for Sinai at the Jebel Musa
near the southern tip of the peninsula continues to be accepted as the most likely site given what is known about ancient trade routes through these wilderness areas.

across the strait in Morocco) which formed the edge of the known world.
