Gibraltar, British Territory Cruise Port

Gibraltar holds the status of being a British Overseas Territory and is located at the entrance of the Mediterranean Sea, on the Southern end of the Iberian Peninsula. Gibraltar covers an approximate area of 6.8 km2 and holds a population of 32,194 according to estimates of 2015. It shares its Northern border with the Spanish province of Cadiz. The region's main landmark is the Rock of Gibraltar and majority of the region's people reside at the foot of the feature in a densely populated city area. The sovereignty of Gibraltar has been a major point of contention between Spain and the United Kingdom, but peace has reigned in the region making it ideal for tourist travel. Listed below are some of the recommended experiences and activities that visitors could enjoy after cruising to Gibraltar:
 
  • The Southern tip of Gibraltar's peninsula is where Europa Point lies. This venue is well worth a visit since it is rich with historical structures like the 19th Century lighthouse, the Mosque of the Custodian of the Holy Mosques, and the old Nuestra Senora de Europa Chapel.
     
  • Nature lovers should definitely pay a visit to the Upper Rock where they will find the Gibraltar Nature Reserve. This reserve is where visitors will get a chance to see the island's famous Barbary macaques, which are the only monkeys living freely in the wild in Europe.
     
  • The island hosts over 150 caves. Visitors should not miss out on taking a tour of the largest cave of them all, the St. Michael's Cave. It lies at approximately 274 meters above sea level. The stalagmites and stalactites in the cave provide spectacular ambiance and views.
     
  • Another fascinating place for visitors to tour is the Moorish Castle that dates back to the 8th century but was rebuilt in the 14th century. It is in the old town and overlooks the Castemates Square. The castle has numerous battle scars from the historical sieges on the island.
