The rich diversity of nature found in Gibraltar draws many visitors every year. High on the Rock live its most famous residents, the friendly, charming and inquisitiveBarbary apes, Europe’s only wild primates that have lived here for centuries.
Situated at latitude 36o07'N and longitude 05o21, Gibraltar juts out steeplyfrom the low-lying Spanish territory to which it is connected by a sandyisthmus, a mile long and half a mile wide. Five miles east, across the Bay of Gibraltar,lies the Spanish port of Algeciras and 20 miles south,across the Strait, is northern Africa.
The following website provides comprehensive advice for those visiting Gibraltar for holidays or business. The site covers where to eat and event listings, and provides guidance on accommodation, things to do, history and heritage sites and general information.
The Rock was formed 200 million years ago,more or less in the shape we see it as today, following a massive upheaval of the Earth. While dinosaurs roamed, the tectonic plates that formed Africa and Europe collided and a massive piece of Jurassic limestone was forced up from the seabed and flipped over.
Throughout the ages, the Rock of Gibraltar has cast a powerful first impression on those that have seen it. Whether approaching by land, sea or air, the Rock looms stark and isolated as it towers above the region.
