The Rock of Gibraltar, Gibraltar

Must see · Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
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.
