Does anyone have pictures of the border between Morocco and Spain in Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera?


It´s a very "special" border


Another interesting border is between Spain and France in Le Perthus/Els Limits

What's the point of keeping a barren rock like that just to spite Morocco?

It can only be for political reasons, considered that no civilians live there, it is not a tourist attraction, or maybe it is, but it doesn't provide money for Spain, only for Morocco (oops!), and it is surely quite expensive for Spain to mantain control of it.

Construction of the international bridge over the Oyapock River between France and Brazil is now in full swing. The bridge should be completed before the end of this year. Here are some pictures taken last March. It will be the southernmost land border crossing of the European Union and the Schengen Area.

The river may look narrow...


... but look at the size of the boat for an idea of scale

The existing border in Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera is a blue rope.
Furthermore, until the 30s Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera was an island, but an earthquake he did unite the African continent.

It is curious that we think the same about Gibraltar. That rock seems to be more important to the U.K. than cities like Belfast. Things must stay the same. Gibraltar is British and North African territories (Plazas de soberanía) are Spanish

Not really. It's more about the wishes of the people of Gibraltar to remain separate from Spain. The UK finds it hard to even pretend to be arsed about the place.
