Gibraltar (U.K.), Gibraltar

Gibraltar (U.K.)
Gibraltar

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.
