Gibraltar is steeped in history; an intertwining of civilisations and cultures which dates back many thousands of years. It is a living history reflected not just in the Gibraltarians themselves, but also in the many legacies that remain to this day, including a number of prehistoric caves, a medieval castle and 11th century baths, Georgian and Victorian buildings as well as architecture which reflects Portuguese, Genoese and Moorish influences. Holidays to Gibraltar are an ideal way to experience this range of cultures and reflect on Gibraltar’s fantastic history.
Holidays in Gibraltar are also great for those who want to indulge in a bit of spending. Gold jewellery, watches, perfumes, porcelain figures and designer wear are perhaps the best buys, although cigars and spirits tend to be the most popular duty free purchases.
Gibraltar offers something for everyone, ranging from architectural treasures and priceless artefacts. With a great range of things to do in Gibraltar is it great for an island getaway. Located more than 300 metres above sea level, with magnificent stalactites and stalagmites, is St Michael's Cave. The main chamber has been transformed into a large subterranean auditorium, and provides a unique venue for concerts, ballet and drama. There are the spectacular Alameda Botanical Gardens whence you can take the Gibraltar cable car up to the Apes' Den and then onto the summit of the Rock. The rock of Gibraltar is undoubtedly one of the most popular sights of the island as it dominates the skyline. The views from the top are quite simply breath-taking.
There's a Medieval Castle, museums, heritage centres and War memorials as well as a church, a cathedral a Hindu temple a synagogue and a Mosque. Sailing Centres offer a full range of courses, three established schools offer diving opportunities, fishing is a popular pastime and dolphin-watching, and to a lesser extent whale-watching, trips are also available.
Gibraltar's most important attraction, the Barbary apes are actually tail-less monkeys. Today the monkeys enjoy the rudest health living in the Apes' Den and roaming wild on the steep slopes of the Rock. Apes’ Den is by far one the most popular things to do in Gibraltar however; the apes should not be approached, touched or fed.
Gibraltar holidays, although fantastic in their own right, can also be combined with a stay in the Costa del Sol.
