Tiny Gibraltar, or ‘The Rock’ as it is known, is a self-governing British Colony on the southernmost tip of Spain, overlooking the narrow Straits of Gibraltar. It covers just 6.8 km2 and is an important Royal Navy base. It has 28,000 residents and although it is a member of the EU it still retains its Gibraltar pound as currency.|
Inside the huge limestone rock are several huge caverns and tunneled roads which are used by the military. The area is inhabited by many free-roaming Barbary apes. Tourism is a major source of revenue with many cruise shops docking here.
The British High Street stores and local pubs are a huge attraction in the pedestrianized streets of the old town and can be enjoyed from our Gibraltar Webcams.
