The Rock of Gibraltar, Gibraltar

4.3
Towering over what was once the edge of the antique Greco-Roman civilization, The Rock of Gibraltar offers panoramic views as well as some of the highlights of any tour of Gibraltar. Rising 426 m (1,398 ft) above sea level, this incredibly important strategic rock bears traces left by its many conquerors. Follow the loop trail in either direction and discover its most important sites, including a Moorish castle, a small museum dedicated to the French and Spanish siege, a natural cave turned into an auditorium, and a network of underground tunnels. Reasonably fit nature lovers should take the Mediterranean steps. The rock is home to a population of Barbary macaques that can behave quite mischievously, especially if you forget that these are wild animals.

  • I'm on an organized trip to Andalusia. We literally missed a day visiting this "no place". The definition is not accidental, since the British have been able to make this handkerchief of land, beaten by the wind with a virtually non-existent sea, the "golden egg hen". With the idea of seeing who knows what wonder, you will find yourself bottled up in a hellish traffic worthy of a metropolis, concentrated in a path that is what allows you to access the fortress. At the modest price of 25 euros apiece a ramshackle van takes you to visit the caves, nice but nothing to be exceptional. The special thing is the monkeys that populate the place as poor creatures to which many, despite the information, feed in order to photograph them. They, however, aware of the continuous snacks do not escape and stop close to the local staff as sole employees. A very simple way to distort and make attraction, after all the only truly, this place that else has. The myth of saving is another invention. There are no taxes but prices are high so be careful. In addition, the weather is always cloudy as the winds move the clouds that remain entangled in the fortress I understand just the city center, of only one way, thus making it truly English. As soon as you come out the weather improves. The real story, that of the Arab arrival in this place is the charm of this place of which, however, is the only thing that survived.
