Gibraltar (Day Trip) Travel Information
Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula and is bordered to the north by Spain. The landscape is dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar at the foot of which is a densely populated city area, home to over 30,000 people, primarily Gibraltarians. It shares a maritime border with Morocco.
Gibraltar’s economy is mainly dominated by four sectors: financial, tourism, online gambling and shipping. The English territory can be proud of enjoying a very prosperous economy with an extremely low unemployment rate of 1 %.
Although the official language of Gibraltar is English, most of the population speaks Spanish too. Also, Gibraltarians speak a very peculiar dialect called Llanito which is a mixture of Andalusian Spanish and British English.
Take a walk through its historic center and get to the top of The Rock to enjoy the incredible views of the Strait of Gibraltar, and the northern coastline of Africa.
