GIBRALTAR O que fazer em 24h / WHAT TO VISIT IN 24H | Touristugas
Gibraltar é uma pequena península no sul de Espanha mas de propriedade do Império Britânico. Com uma estratégica localização geográfica do ponto de vista militar, foi palco de imensos conflitos bélicos que escreveram a sua história.
O grande destaque deste território é sem dúvida o Rochedo de Gibraltar, composto por calcário, ergue-se a 426m acima do mar.
Primeiramente colonizado pelos mouros na Idade Média e, depois, governado pelos espanhóis, o território foi cedido aos britânicos em 1713. Nas camadas de fortificações, há restos de um castelo mouro do século XIV e os Túneis do Grande Cerco, escavados no século XVIII e expandidos na Segunda Guerra Mundial. Aqui também habitam os Macacos da Barbaria, a única população de macacos selvagens da Europa.
Gibraltar is a small peninsula in southern Spain but owned by the British Empire. With a strategic geographical location from the military point of view, it was the scene of immense war conflicts that wrote its history. The great highlight of this territory is undoubtedly the Rock of Gibraltar, composed of limestone, rising 426m above the sea.
First colonized by the Moors in the Middle Ages and later governed by the Spanish, the territory was ceded to the British in 1713. In the layers of fortifications, there are remains of a 14th century Moorish castle and the Great Siege Tunnels, excavated in the 18th century and expanded in World War II. Barbary Apes also live here, the only population of wild monkeys in Europe.

Gibraltar - A Few Reasons Why You Should Visit This Place
Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located at the bottom of Spain on the narrow gap between Europe and Africa.
Known as the Gib or the Rock, it is a small 2.5 squared area with a population of just 30,000 - but it has huge strategic importance.
This is because from this spot a navy can potentially control shipping in and out of the Mediterranean - much of it coming from Asia having travelled through the Suez canal.
The UK, a key member of NATO, has a naval and military base there for this reason

Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula. It has an area of 6.7 km² and is bordered to the north by Spain. Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar also has contact with the Atlantic Ocean.The landscape is dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar and below is the densely populated town area, home to over 30,000 people, primarily Gibraltarians.The official language of Gibraltar is English. Most Gibraltarians converse in Llanito,their vernacular which is mostly based on Andalusian Spanish but with numerous loan words from English as well other Mediterranean languages. A Victorian post box of standard 1887 UK design in use.
Europa point is the southernmost point of Gibraltar.The Ibrahim-al-Ibrahim Mosque is located at Europa Point. The building was a gift from King Fahd of Saudi Arabia and took two years to build.
Trinity Lighthouse at Europa Point(Victoria Tower) is a lighthouse on the southeastern tip of the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar.You can see the views of North Africa across the Strait of Gibraltar including Ceuta and the Rif Mountains of Morocco Gibraltar’s unique position proved invaluable during World War 2, Driving up to the St Michael's cave. St. Michael's Cave, located halfway up the western slope of the Rock, is the most prominent and is a popular tourist attraction.The monkeys of Gibraltar are the main attraction at the Rock of Gibraltar. There are about 300 Barbary Macaques living on the rock. They are sometimes called “Barbary Apes” because they don’t have tails .the Barbary macaque is one of the best-known Old World monkey species.The Government of Gibraltar officially takes care of the monkeys, they are given immunizations and each are named and catalogued. The Michael’s cave was created by rainwater slowly seeping through the limestone rock, turning into a weak carbonic acid which gradually dissolved the rock.The cave is in a completely natural state, although fully lit and kitted out with ropes to aid minor climbing and scrambling. It has been in use as a theatre since the early sixties with capacity for 600 persons.The Gibraltar World Music Festival is held here each year.From the base station near the southern end of Main Street, next to Alameda Gardens, the cable car travels up the Rock of Gibraltar to the Ape's Den midway up the Rock, and then to the top of the Rock.After saying goodbye to the Michael's cave we headed towards the tunnel that was made during World War 2.Named the Great North Road and built in 1940, the mile-long complex was built deep inside the Rock to protect soldiers and equipment from Luftwaffe bombing raids. The tunnel is one of the largest man made underground spaces without roof supports. The tunnels house everything 16,000 soldiers needed to survive for 16 months - a telephone exchange, a generating station, a water desalination plant, a hospital ward, a bakery, a frozen food store, munitions stores and a station to repair damaged vehicles and passageways The tunnel network was so big that it needed its own power supplies. The Calpe Hole Generating Station supplied power to all areas under the Rock along the Great North Road. There are similar generating stations in other areas on the mountain.A water pipe still runs the length of the Great North Road carrying fresh water towards residents properties from underground reservoirs.Few Pictures from the time of the tunnel construction are displayed in the tunnel.After the war, the tunnels were kept intact by the Ministry of Defence. They are currently used for training troops in underground warfare.
These are the secret World War Two tunnels dug into the Rock of Gibraltar to protect the Allies - and with 'streets' named after English towns so British troops could find their way around. Gibraltar was strategically important during the Second World War because it allowed the British to control access to the Mediterranean Sea.
After reaching back from Gibraltar, we made a quick trip to Malalga , had dinner, did some shopping and and enjoyed freshly-made churros! After a fun day, we headed back to our resort! We can see the runway of Gibraltar airport from here. The airport was constructed during World War II when Gibraltar was an important naval base for the British.The runway was later extended by reclaiming some land from the Bay of Gibraltar using the rock blasted from the Rock of Gibraltar while carrying out works on military tunnels.
Winston Churchill Avenue intersects the airport runway, and consequently has to be closed every time a plane lands or departs.

EXPLORING GIBRALTAR - My experience traveling to Gibraltar. What to do and where to go!
In this video, I get to talk about my experience with Gibraltar. This place is part of the British territory and it is on the south coast of Spain. I had the opportunity to visit this place as I was working with a friend in southern Spain. I get to share about what places to visit and things to do. Also, there are some interesting historic facts about this place. Exploring Gibraltar is amazing. I get to share some of my favorite pictures from the trip.
Some things to do in Gibraltar are going to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar. You get to see an amazing view and feed the apes, and these are the only wild apes in Europe. There is the Moorish Castle, Saint Michael’s Cave, the Great Siege Tunnels, and so much more.
