As I was clearing up my files, I came across some pictures of a brief trip to Gibraltar a few years ago.

Gibraltar is situated on Spain’s south coast and is a British Overseas Territory. Its main feature is the famous Rock of Gibraltar and in terms of history, this is what Google has to say:

First settled by the Moors in the Middle Ages and later ruled by Spain, the outpost was ceded to the British in 1713. Layers of fortifications include the remains of a 14th-century Moorish Castle and the 18th century Great Siege Tunnels, which were expanded in WWII.

During my brief 24 hours visit to Gibraltar, I saw a bit of everything it had to offer, from the One Hundred Ton Gun, to the Europa Point, Moorish Castle, the Great Siege Tunnels and the Barbary Macaques (the apes) on the Rock.
