A taste of England in the middle of Spain

The towering Rock of Gibraltar is a sight to behold. Overlooking the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea from a height of 1,400 feet, it is a natural fortress, in a strategic position to control all naval traffic between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.

Only three miles long and a mile wide, this peninsula attached to the Spanish mainland juts out into the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates continental Europe from North Africa, a distance of only 14 miles.

One feature most unusual for Europe is the troupes of semi-wild and curiously tail-less Barbary macaques that have taken up residence on The Rock’s upper reaches.
