Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located on a peninsula off the south of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea, and it is particularly famous for its cave system, nature reserve and dolphin safaris. The peninsula is often known as The Rock owing to its towering rock formation, and many of the tourist attractions in Gibraltar are situated or focus on the Rock.
Gibraltar is home to a famous breed of monkeys, the Barbary macaques, which can only be found in a select few locations in the world, and they can be found running freely on the Upper Rock.
St Michael’s Cave is probably the biggest attraction for tourists, who are invited to explore the complex cave network running through the Rock, where they can also learn about the former Neolithic inhabitants of this attractive, rugged grotto.
There are some spectacular panoramic views from Europa Point, where visitors can look out onto Africa and see where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean.
