Tour day: Tuesday
A little piece of Great Britain on the Spanish coast. The limestone Rock of Gibraltar, dating back to the Jurassic period was named in Antiquity as one of the columns of Hercules. Gibraltar has been occupied by various Mediterranean civilizations. It became Moorish territory in 711, was conquered by the Spanish in 1462, and then by British in 1704. It’s a place of many cultures and faiths, and is the symbolic link to the African continent. Inland, its limestone caves are of unusual size and beauty. The monkeys at the top of the Rock of Gibraltar are a major tourist attraction. There will be free time for looking around, shopping and an optional and unforgettable excursion to the top of the Rock.
