The Pillars of Hercules at Ceuta is a statue in the Spanish town of Ceuta, a Spanish enclave in the extreme north of the African continent, on the strait of Gibraltar.
In ancient times, the strait of Gibraltar, which connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean, was known as The Pillars of Hercules.
The statue consists of two huge bronze pillars, held apart by Hercules. The statue is the work of Ceuta artist Ginés Serrán Pagán. The statue is 7 meters high and each pillar weighs 4 tons. They are currently the largest classical Greek mythology bronze sculptures in the world.
