our apartment in Tarifa, to the right are big sliding windows with view of Tarifa and Africa!
We drove in the rain off and on all afternoon. By the time we got into town it was no longer raining. The entrance to to city wall was blocked and we found parking just outside the wall in a garage. We had to squeeze the mini into a really small place! Again thankful that we got a small car.
The town streets were cobblestone and on a slight incline toward the water. We got an apartment on the top street right inside the gate but it was 3 stories up. Whew luckily we travel light or I would hate to lug the bags up. The view is great! We had a small deck outside the room for a view of the small old city and the port and the strait of Gibralter and we could see Africa! Lights of cities and some mountains. Wow! It was after 9pm when we checked into our apartment. It's a good thing that they eat dinner late in Spain!
We walked around the old city it's quite charming, and had dinner about 10pm at the Restaurant La Pescaderia, a fish restaurant with delicious seafood. After dinner, on the way back to the apartment, we encountered more Holy Week processions, but since Tarifa is a really small town, the crowds were small too, and we were able to be right there on the street without feeling cramped!
