Description

First of all we will visit the 100 tonne 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. Once we have finished the 100 tonne 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. Then we will drive up the upper rock our first stop at the nature reserve will be The Pillars of Hercules. From the Pillars we will drive further deeper into the nature reserve stopping at St Michael s Cave. Which sees thousands of visitors a year wandering through its huge caverns with just a few steps and easy access. Next we will go to the top of the Rock where you will see breathtaking views all around Gibraltar from the Skywalk. Here we will send some time with our Monkeys 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. 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. This 'Tower of Homage' was rebuilt in the 14th century by Abu-l-Hasan and today you can visit the inside of the recently restored castle, wonder at those 14th century walls and marvel at the feats of Gibraltar's first city builders, the Moors. If you look closely you can still see the cannon dents in the castle walls. In this Tour we will drive over the airport runway towards the Spanish border just meters away from Spain you will even see Spanish Customs at work. We will also drive 360 degrees around Gibraltar coast lines East /west stopping at viewpoints and seeing areas as Catalan Bay some Jurassic sand dunes and the old water catchments.
