As you travel around the Spanish Iberian Peninsula you may want to spend some time in the small section of British overseas territory on its southern tip known as Girbaltar. The territory of Gibraltar itself is a peninsula, situated at the entrance of the Mediterranean, overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar. At under seven square kilometers it is a densely populated town, home to nearly 30,000 Gibraltarians. You can make your way around town with a Gibraltar car hire.
Tourism is an important industry to Gibraltar. It is a popular port for cruise ships and attracts day visitors from resorts in Spain. The Rock of Gibraltar is a very popular tourist attraction, particularly among British tourists and residents in the southern coast of Spain. Many come for shopping in Gibraltar, where all goods and services are VAT free. Several large British chains have branches or franchises in Gibraltar, including Marks & Spencer and Mothercare.
Around the streets of Gibraltar it is very common to see the semi-wild Barbary Macaques. The population of these monkeys is the last in the whole of the European continent, and unlike their relatives in North Africa, they are thriving here. Locally known as Barbary Apes or Rock Apes due to the fact that these monkeys don't have tails, they are occasionally responsible for damages to personal property. The most popular troop in the area is that of Queen's Gate at The Apes' Den, where you can get close for great photos with the monkeys.
There are a large number of attractions to see with your car hire Gibraltar. Visit places like Gibraltar's Moorish Castle, the Grate Siege Tunnels, St. Michael's Cave, the 100 ton gun, Europa Point, and the Ibrahim-al-Ibrahim Mosque.
