The Caves of Hercules

The caves of Hercules, located just 14kms west of Tangiers, are a place of stunning natural beauty and great archaeological significance. Apparently, this is where the mythical figure Hercules used to rest after finishing his 12 labours. In a fit of temporary insanity inflicted by the goddess Hera, ... Hercules killed his own son. As part of his sentence, Hercules had to perform twelve Labors, feats so difficult that they seemed impossible. He became the embodiment of what the Greeks call "pathos", the experience of virtuous struggle and suffering lead to tremendous popularity, fame, and in his case, immortality. Here are his 12 tasks: 1. Slay the Nemean Lion and bring back its fur. 2. Slay the Lernaean Hydra. 3. Capture the Ceryneian Hind. 4. Capture the Erymanthian Boar. 5. Clean the Augean stables. 6. Slay the Stymphalian Birds. 7. Capture the Cretan Bull. 8. Steal the Mares of Diomedes. 9. Obtain the Girdle of Hippolyte. 10. Obtain the Cows of Geryon. 11. Steal the Apples of the Hesperides. 12. Capture Cerberus, the guardian dog of Hades. The mouths of the caves open up onto the Atlantic and are flooded at high tide. When the tide comes in, water gushes up through these massive holes in the ground and hillside. It's very impressive.
