Destination Information for Gibraltar
Gibraltar is a headland on Spain’s south coast but is a British Overseas Territory. The British first took control of Gibraltar in 1712 and they continue to influence the region, with fish-and-chips shops and 1970s style seaside hotels.
The Rock of Gibraltar dominates the landscape, with a densely populated town area at its foot. Most of the Rock’s upper sections fall within the Upper Rock Nature Reserve, with entry tickets allowing admission to St Michael’s Cave, the Moorish Castle and the Great Siege Tunnels. There are also 600 species of plant, and viewpoints to watch bird migrations between Africa and Europe.
A visit to Gibraltar Museum provides an insight into the history of the area. The exhibits span masses of time, documenting events ranging from prehistoric Gibraltar to an Egyptian mummy found in the bay in the 1800s. A highlight is the coverage of the infamous Great Siege which occurred between 1779 and 1783.
