Flights from Gibraltar
Gibraltar is a British Overseas territory located at the tip of Spain, at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula. It is one of the smaller islands in the area, just at the entrance of the Mediterranean, and sharing its northern border with the Province of Cadiz in Andalusia. Its population of over 30,000 mixed Gibraltarians and other nationalities live at the foot of the Rock of Gibraltar, its major landmark.
One of the Anglo-Dutch forces captured Gibraltar from Spain in 1704 during the War of Spanish Succession. The territory was then ceded to Great Britain “in perpetuity,” under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. Up until today, it stays under the tutelage of Great Britain, and under the crown of the Royal Family and Queen of England. Gibraltar also became a great base for the Royal Navy, apart from being a money cow as a tourism, online gambling, financial services, and shipping center.
Where to go
Gibraltar is a fancy play pen of the rich, located just at the entrance of the Mediterranean Sea. Its location, proximity to Europe, and influence from England, catapulted it to its current position. Within the territory, a handful of sights can be discovered and visited.
Rock of Gibraltar - the Rock of Gibraltar is a monolithic limestone promontory located in the British overseas territory of Gibraltar, off the south-western tip of Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. It is 426 feet high, and is known as the most iconic landmark in Gibraltar. Fondly called “The Rock,” it is a crown property of the United Kingdom. Most of the Rock’s upper area is covered by a nature reserve, which is home to around 300 Barbary macaques. These macaques, as well as a labyrinthine network of tunnels, attract a large number of tourists each year. The Rock of Gibraltar was also known as one of the Pillars of Hercules and was known to the Romans as Mons Calpe, the other pillar being Mons Abyla or Jebel Musa on the African side of the Strait. In ancient times, the two points marked the limit to the known world, a myth originally fostered by the Greeks and the Phoenicians.
St. Michael’s Cave - the St. Michael’s Cave is the name given to a network of limestone caves located within the Rock of Gibraltar’s Nature Reserve. Its name is derived from a similar grotto in Monte Gargano near the Sanctuary of Monte Sant'Angelo in Apulia, where the archangel Michael is said to have appeared. The St. Michael’s cave is the most visited cave from over 150 caves found inside the Rock of Gibraltar. The largest of its chambers, called the Cathedral Cave, currently serves as an auditorium due to the chamber’s natural acoustic properties.
Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park - the Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park is a small wildlife sanctuary within the Botanic Gardens of Gibraltar. It began in 1994 as a collection of parrots, tortoises, and monkeys all confiscated from illegal traders who were passing through Gibraltar. The local Customs authorities handed these animals to the Gibraltar Ornithological and Natural History Society (GONHS). While it started as a sanctuary for confiscated animals, it now became an educational center for local schools and a favorite destination to tourists visiting the Botanical Gardens.
London - London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. It is the country’s most important city, the financial center, the powerhouse, and the command center of the country. For tourists who are visiting London, never miss out on visiting the Buckingham Palace, the Royal Parks, Madame Tussauds, and 221 Baker Street, where the popular BBC (British Broadcasting Channel) mini-series “Sherlock” is shot.
Manchester - is a city in Greater Manchester, England. It is UK’s second most populous urban area, which has a population of 2.55 million. It is an important center in the country, as well as a famous tourism destination.
