Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean, is bordered by the Province of Cadiz in Andalusia, Spain. The country is known for the iconic Rock of Gibraltar, a monolithic limestone promontory, with a height of 426 metres or 1,398 feet.

Where to go

The Rock of Gibraltar’s upper portion is a nature reserve, housing about 300 Barbary macaques that attract a large number of tourists each year. Another attraction in the Rock of Gibraltar is the labyrinthine network of tunnels. There are also more than 500 species of flowering plants that can be seen on the Rock, as well as other points of interests including the Moorish Castle; a system of underground passages known as the Galleries or the Great Siege Tunnels; St. Michael’s Cave, an impressive natural grotto; the Mediterranean Steps that starts at Jew’s Gate bird observatory and winds its way up the east side of the Rock to the top; and Europa Point, where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean. This is where the coast of Africa can be viewed, particularly great views of the east and west sides.
