Dating back to ancient Greek legends, the Strait of Gibraltar was thought to be at the edge of the world. The popular belief was that sailing through the strait, known as the Pillars of Hercules, would lead to sailing right off the edge of the world. Today, the strait has a huge impact on global trade, connecting the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. Although geographically in Spain, Gibraltar is still a British territory. Spain has disputed this for centuries and even taken the matter to the United Nations. Currently, the issue is at a stalemate.
