  • 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

    Not only does Gibraltar have horrendous traffic congestion and parking problems (beware of legalised clamping) but the Main Street with its many shops and boutiques is difficult to navigate when one of these enormous cruise liners berths on a day visit, its passengers swarming into the narrow streets looking for bargains and souvenirs in the...

  • 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...

  • Europa Point

    Gibraltar Favorites

    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...

  • Caves / Tunnels

    Gibraltar Favorites

    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. Inside you have some marvelous sights with its interconnecting passageways with really impressive stalagmites and stalactites....

  • 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!

  • Forts / Batteries / Castles

    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....

  • Harbour District

    Gibraltar Favorites

    Gibraltar is an ideal centre for water sports such as sailing, yachting and diving. There are three marinas here: Marina Bay, Sheppard's Marina and Queensway Quary. Apart from the excellent facilities and services that they provide , some of Gibraltar's finest restaurants can be found on the sea front of there marinas.

  • Mosques / Shrines / Churches

    Gibraltar Favorites

    The impressive Mosque which now dominates the Europa Point area is a rescent addition, having been officially inaugurated on the 8th August 1997. The building, which cost around five million pounds, was a gift from King Fahad Al-Saud os Saudi Arabria and took two years to build.
