    Excuse my ignorance but does the 24h mean you can park for 24 hours and then have to move on or that it is open 24 h a day?

    NO IDEA.. :)
    In reality if you pay you stay...
    These aires are often private ventures, there may be a limit but it wont be a short one. Certainly not one night...!

    This is a link to the Streetview image. Appears to be a filling station with the Aire at the back...
    https://www.google.com/maps/@36.191...AsnIFAGTon_w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1?hl=es

    Digital co-ordinates are... 36.191522, -5.348563

    Looks like it is about 5 km from border crossing to Gibraltar and about 9km from the A7-E15 coastal motorway. Looks like it is in a Commercial area.
    I know from experience that there is a Lidl and a Carrefour not that far away and this Aire provides an alternative for the 'Wild' spot where the Gibraltar bound traffic is stacked when the border is 'in dispute'

    I wonder if the '24' refers to the fact that the filling station is open 24 hours?

    Not the place to spend a holiday :)
    But at least some where to empty toilet / grey water and overnight if needed.
    I would assume it's free to stay, cant really see anyone paying to be there.
    From the map, Aldi and Lidl along the same road (y)

    For those looking for a stop in walking distance of Gib frontier have a look at link, it is inside the Puerto Deportivo (marina) in La Linea think it is €12 per night with water facilities available.
    As well as visiting GiB, don't forget La Linea itself, well worth a wander around. Among other historical stuff and shopping.......... great ice cream parlours!!!! (So I'm told)
