Rising up as an indomitable peak at the gateway between Spain and the African coast, Gibraltar is a unique destination with a life that goes beyond its surface.
Guided tour in Gibraltar
The monolithic Rock of Gibraltar entices tourists with its lush greenery and the friendly Barbary Macaques ubiquitous to the area.
Long famous as the “key to the Mediterranean,” Gibraltar has been a British Overseas Territory since 1713 after being seized during the War of Spanish Succession. Near the southern tip of the Iberian peninsula and overlooking one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, the “Rock of Gibraltar,” as it’s still often known, rises out of the sea on the east side of Algeciras Bay and is linked with mainland Spain by a narrow isthmus.
On the way back from Gibraltar, we cannot miss Puerto Banús, the luxury marina and shopping complex built in May 1970 by José Banús, a local property developer that has since become one of the largest entertainment centres in the Costa del Sol and Marbella old town, with its narrow streets with their nooks and crannies, historic buildings, shops, boutiques and galleries, which make it a very rewarding experience.
