The Port of Gibraltar is located on a peninsula at the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea. Its strategic location, where you can see the shore of Morocco on the other side and the gigantic rocky cape, named the Rock, has made this British territory a very important defense post. You can visit the tunnels dug in “the Rock” to better understand its military vocation. This territory is so small that a road crosses the runway of its airport.

Rock of Gibraltar
This limestone mountain reaches an altitude of 426 meters. Many trails are laid out there.
The Great Siege lasted from July 1779 to February 1783 as the French and Spanish attempted to retake the Rock of Gibraltar. The first tunnels were built there during this period.
Gibraltar was a strategic location during the Second World War. You can visit the tunnels built in the Rock of Gibraltar to understand their roles in the war.
Semi-wild Barbary macaques live on the Rock. They should not be touched or fed. Don’t bring plastic bags with you, as they will want to steal them from you to see if there is food inside.
This lighthouse located on the southern tip of Gibraltar was built in 1841 and offers a view of the sea (and Morocco on the other side on a clear day).
It is possible to visit the caves. These are illuminated and a sound and light show is presented.
Opened to the public in 1816, the botanical garden contains several plants and trees from the region as well as specimens imported from elsewhere.
