On the Rock of Gibraltar, the past is a living reality.
There can be few places in the world which equal The Rock in terms of sheer physical presence.
Gibraltar is also situated in a unique strategic location on the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar and linked to the Spanish mainland by a narrow isthmus. This serves both as a major thoroughfare from the border, and as the local airport runway.
Despite its imposing appearance, visible from up to 100 kilometres away, Gibraltar is small, measuring less than six square kilometres in total. In it, a fascinating blend of cultures that have all left their mark throughout a rich and tumultous history, have made Gibraltar what it is today.
Colourful ceremonial events like the Changing of the Guard and the Ceremony of the Keys re-enact what at one time was a common occurrence to guard the integrity of the fortress.
In the Gibraltar Museum – strategically positioned over one of the finest fourteenth century Moorish bathhouses - you can find a series of fascinating exhibits from every period of the Rock’s extraordinary history.
