Gibraltar is a British colony located on a peninsula at the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea. It is roughly five km long and one km wide. It borders on the Spanish town of La Linea located in the South of Spain. We elected to stay in La Linea due to the high cost of accomodation in Gibraltar.
Gibraltar is self governing today and is only dependent on Britain for defence. It is the only British colony on the European mainland. Gibraltar has several attractions that are well worth visiting. The rock itself has two packs of apes. One of which can be seen every day at the Ape's Den and the other pack lives wild on the rock. At the top of the rock there are fabulous views of Gibraltar and the north coast of Morocco.
