Description

100 Ton Gun First of all we will visit the 100 Ton Gun.The late 1800's saw four of these giants built by the naval authorities of Britain, with a view toward securing their holdings, two were built for Gibraltar, while another two were built for Malta. Europa Point Once we have finished the 100 Ton Gun we will drive to Europa Point. This site is located at the southernmost point at the end of the Rock of Gibraltar on this location you will see breathtaking views across the Strait of Gibraltar into North Africa Morocco along with the bay of Gibraltar and the Spanish towns along its shores. Nature Reserve & St Michael's Cave After visiting the Southern point of Gibraltar we will drive up towards the upper rock Nature Reserve Park. Our first stop in the park will be St Michael's Cave. Which sees thousands of visitors a year wandering through its huge caverns with just a few steps and easy access. This amazing, natural phenomenon created by rainwater slowly seeping through the limestone rock, turning into a weak carbonic acid which gradually dissolved the rock millions of years ago. Gibraltar Monkeys & Top of The Rock Next we will go to the top of the Rock, and there we will do 2 things: The glass viewing platform called The Skywalk, and visit the monkeys. The Skywalk is a former military lookout transformed into a state of the art glass platform and walkway giving spectacular views across the Mediterranean. An unbroken 360º panoramic viewpoint. Enter the 360º environment and get a feel for the freedom and exhilaration you will experience at The Skywalk. From the Skywalk, several minutes walk and we will spend some time with our famous Monkeys at Upper Apes Den (The same height level as the cable) The Barbary Macaque Apes are the only ones to be found within the continent of Europe. They reside at the upper rock nature reserve of Gibraltar. The Great Siege Tunnels From the top of the rock we will drive to the north side of the Rock to visit the Great Siege Tunnels, something not to be missed. This site explains a lot of the history of Gibraltar under siege. The tunnels were carved out of the rock by hand during the Great Siege which took place between 1779-1783. This was done in order to defend Gibraltar against the Spanish and French forces who were trying to recapture Gibraltar from the British. Gibraltar's Moorish Castle As we drive down the upper rock nature reserve we will visit The Moorish Castle - A medieval fortification in Gibraltar which is made up of a number of buildings, the Moorish Castle stands proudly on the Eastern elevation of the Rock, a proud symbol of the long and colourful history of the Rock of Gibraltar originally built in the 1160CE then it was ransacked by the Spanish between 1309 – 1333. As we exit the nature reserve park we will drive through the old town of Gibraltar.
