Description

Explore the history of Gibraltar on a sightseeing tour by a small air-conditioned minibus. Travel back in time at Gibraltar's most famous sights. Continue to Europa Point, the southernmost point in Gibraltar, with its Trinity House Lighthouse and impressive views across the Straits of Gibraltar to the northern coast of Africa. Your next stop is the spectacular St. Michael’s Cave, which was converted into a military hospital during World War II. It has a wealth of history that dates back tens of thousands of years, and today it is used as a concert hall, with one of the best natural auditoriums with great acoustics. Continue to Apes Den to meet the famous Barbary Apes, the only apes still roaming wild in Europe, in their natural habitat. Continue with a visit to the Great Siege Tunnels. The tour ends in Casemates Square, ideal if you wish to carry on shopping or relax at a local restaurant.
