Gibraltar, Atlantis and mythology

I have always been fascinated by Atlantis.
I wrote about it in Phobic Wars...
Is it any more wh the search for Atlantis is firmly centred around my home town of Gibraltar!

The following article from the New York Times certainly makes me think of why.

"The Rock of Gibraltar is part of Plato’s most tantalizing clue: that Atlantis was an island that once sat “in front of the mouth” of the Pillars of Hercules. Ancient accounts place these columns at Gibraltar and Jebel Musa, a peak across the straits in Morocco, or Monte Hacho, a smaller mountain slightly farther east."


I was recently home and took the attached photo.
