Africa and Europe are separated by less than 9 miles at the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates Spain from Morocco. The strait is named after the Gibraltar mountain which is on the Spanish side on the border while the Moroccan side of the border also has a mountain called Jbel Musa.It is said that Hercules (a hero of Greek legend) decided to pull Africa and Spain apart, using Gibraltar and the Moroccan mountain of Jbel Musa as his handgrips. They are known as The Pillars of Hercules. His efforts are about to be for nought soon though as both Morocco and Spain are discussing constructing an undersea rail tunnel to connect the rail systems on the two continents.Photo Credit: Getty
