  • The Town / Main Street

    Gibraltar Favorites

    The area of the centrally located Casemates Square used to be the old town of the first city which was built here by the Moors. After 13 sieges it was completely pulled down in 1731 and a square was formed. The area was fortified by the Casemates Gates which were opened in 1727. Nowadays Casemates Square is the entertainment centre of Gibraltar....

  • The Rock

    Gibraltar Favorites

    I think that Gibraltar has no water spring, and, being surrounded by Spain, sometimes not so friendly, they had to use other resources to obtain such a vital element. In the slopes facing the sea, largely paved sections seem to be a solution to collect the rain into cisterns. What else could that be?

  • Barbary Apes

    Gibraltar Favorites

    If you visit the rock, be sure to see the Barbary Apes. Legend has it if they leave the rock, Gibraltar will no longer be in British hands. When I sat down in the outside cafeteria, they performed tricks leaping from chairs to tables, and one crafty ape stole my chocolate bar!

  • Cable Car

    Gibraltar Favorites

    Take the cable lift to the top of the Rock. Cabs offer rides to small groups and they stop at various monkey hangouts, but it didn't look very appealing to me. We took the lift up and hiked down to St. Michael's caves and a little beyond. Then we found the stairs beneath the cable lift and climbed back up to the top to catch the lift down. We drove...

    I loved standing where you can see Europe and Africa at the same time! What a beautiful view! The whole day was fabulous! Walking across the runway, having an ape jump on my back, exploring the caves, buying souveniers, viewing africa for the first time from Europa Point, eating fish and chips and drinking a couple of pints, and doing all of this...

  • A View at the Top

    Gibraltar Favorites

    Climb the Rock to view the magnificent draft created against the sea when the Boeings take off. At the airport tarmac itself we have the interesting experience of walking across the runway when the green man lights up. It gives a new dimension to the term 'Give way to pedestrian'. Visit the museum at the Rock. Learn how the British defended this...

    This cave has attracted visitors since Roman times and is situated 300m above sea level on the southerly end of the Rock. During the World War II, its main cave was prepared as amilitary emergency hospital but was not used.

    Gibraltar Favorites

    The inner city of Gibraltar is surrounded by defensive walls and fortifications. They were first built by the Moors and later strengthened by the Spanish and the British. When wandering around Gibraltar you will likely come across one of the city gates. At the northern end you find Landport Gate, which was originally the only way into Gibraltar....
