Stay at the end of the world in a Gibraltar holiday cottage
Eclectic Gibraltar, with its rich military history and diverse influences, is not only astoundingly beautiful; it was once thought to be the end of the world. It is home to some of the most labyrinthine defence systems to be found anywhere on earth, gigantic caverns, and an ancient Moorish castle.
A medley between British and Andalusian cuisines for the past 300 years, Gibraltarian fare also incorporates Maltese, Genoan, and Portuguese influences. Try fideos al horno (‘baked noodles’) and calentita, a pancake dish introduced by the Spanish garrison stationed here in the 16th century. Pan dulce (‘sweet bread’) delectably combines pine nuts, candied peel, and aniseed.
The Moorish Castle on Gibraltar is almost one thousand years old. For centuries, people approaching by sea have been impressed by its fortifications and strategic position. Commander Tarik led 12,000 soldiers to conquer this region of Europe, landing here in 711. The castle witnessed 800 years of war over the Iberian Peninsula between Muslims and Christians.
Gibraltar's most inspirational experiences
The Rock of Gibraltar
Once known as one of the Pillars of Hercules, the Rock once marked one of the edges of the known world. This gigantic limestone promontory is Crown property on the border with Spain. Most of the island is taken up by a nature reserve that is home to over 300 Barbary macaques. There is also warren of tunnels to which visitors are inevitably drawn.
St. Michael's Cave
Since Roman times, this cave has fascinated visitors – it was long believed to be bottomless. This belief may have given rise to the myth that it is linked to the Rock of Gibraltar by a subterranean passage, through which the apes living on the island supposedly came. Once a shrine to Hercules, Spanish troops overnighted here in 1704. Come and see its precipitous underground cliffs for yourself.
The best time to ascend this path is during spring, when you’ll be surrounded by a sea of lavender. Starting at Jews' Gate Cemetery, climb to the summit, which is 180 metres above sea level. On the way, you'll see a wealth of wildlife, the Goat's Hair Twin Caves, and military buildings.
The Great Siege Tunnels
This maze of tunnels is one of the most impressive defence systems ever designed. Following the Great Siege of 1783, defeated French and Spanish troops conceded that the tunnels were ‘worthy of the Romans’. In World War 2, the Royal Engineers added 33 miles of tunnels and additional gun mounts.
Gibraltar Botanic Gardens
Amongst verdant exotic greenery, you'll find a wildlife park and theatre, the venue for an exciting array of events. Established in 1816 by Lieutenant Governor Sir George Don. The site features guns and commemorative busts recalling Gibraltar's military history.
