What to see & do

Rock of Gibraltar - The Rock of Gibraltar's original Latin name is Calpe. It stands at 1,398 feet (426 metres) high and is a monolithic limestone promontory and Crown property of the United Kingdom. Most of The Rock's upper area is a nature reserve containing about 300 Barbary macaques. The Rock of Gibraltar is also known for its system of underground passages, called the Galleries or the Great Siege Tunnels.

Gibraltar Botanic Gardens - The Gibraltar Botanic Gardens, also known as La Alameda Gardens, is a six-hectare botanical garden. The gardens were commissioned by the British Governor of Gibraltar General George Don in 1816, mainly so that the soldiers stationed in the fortress can have a recreational area to enjoy when off duty. The gardens currently contain both native plant species and others that were brought in from other parts of the world. Above the park is The Rock Hotel.

Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park - Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park is a wildlife park in the Botanic Gardens. It was initially established in 1994 with a collection of parrots, tortoises, and monkeys that were confiscated from illegal traders passing through Gibraltar. The park has become a sanctuary for confiscated animals and a place where the public can be made aware of illegal animal trade, as well as local wildlife conservation. The entrance fees collected from visitors are used for general maintenance of the park. The animals featured include Prairie Dog, Pig-tailed Macaque, Egyptian Fruit Bat, Vietnamese Potbelly Pig, Masked Dormice, Chinese Water Dragon, Snapping Turtle, Green Iguana, African Grey Parrot, Red Lory, Monk Parakeet, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, and Senegal Parrot.

How to get around within Gibraltar

Gibraltar is barely seven square kilometres in size, hence is small enough to be navigated on foot for the most part. Some of the roads are quite steep, so those who find it too strenuous can opt to take a taxi instead. Most taxis in Gibraltar function as sort of minibuses, as in they fill the vehicle with passengers before going on the journey. Those who don't want to share the taxi can pay for the extra seats instead. Don't be afraid to say no if the driver offers you a tour, unless you actually want an expensive guided tour.
