Directions - How to find us

The Shrine of Our Lady of Europe is situated at Europa Point in Gibraltar, one of the southern-most tips of Europe - the point where you can see the Mediterranean Sea meeting with the Atlantic Ocean in the Straits of Gibraltar.

 

Travelling to Gibraltar

There are daily flights to Gibraltar from UK airports (Gatwick and Luton).

 

If you are driving into Gibraltar, drive from the frontier along Queensway and Europa Road, and then towards the Lighthouse. You will find clear directions en-route indicating the way to the Shrine.

 

Many pilgrims on foot, catch No.2 Bus which covers the Market Place to Europa Point route.

 

The Shrine is the home of the ancient statue of Our Lady of Europe, Principal Patroness of Gibraltar. The statue dates back 700 years.  Visitors range from faithful devotees to those seeking a time of silent reflection and tourists.
