Gibraltar is like marmite. You either love it or hate it, but you can´t deny its fascinating history and troubled past. The famous rock of Gibraltar is within easy reach of Estepona, Sotogrande and Marbella and if you want to explore a little piece of England on the Mediterranean, there is no better place to visit.
Situated on a narrow piece of land linked to the end of Spain, the rock of Gibraltar is 426 metres high and covers an area of 6 square kilometres. The thin coastal strip of land to the west overlooks the Straits of Gibraltar and the Atlantic Ocean, and the east side with its sheer, steep cliffs overlooks the Mediterranean.
Gibraltar´s history evolves from its strategic position at the southern-most tip of the Iberian peninsula. The territory shares a border with Spain to the North. Gibraltar was granted by Spain to Great Britain in perpetuity in 1713, under the Treaty of Utrecht, and although Spain insists it should be returned to them, it remains British territory. The British Government has vowed to respect the wishes of the Gibraltarians, who oppose any proposals for shared sovereignty with Spain franchise opportunities.
The rock is home to many historical sites and places of interest. Tourism boosts the economy, and many cruise ships also dock here regularly, bringing visitors from all over the globe. Gibraltar has become a popular holiday and business travel destination over the years and has the added bonus of tax-free shopping.
