The Rock of History on the edge of Europe Across the border from Spain, the tiny British colony of Gibraltar is packed full of history dating back to the days the very earth rose out of the sea to form the iconic Rock.
For the visitor today, the compact nature of Gibraltar ensures all areas can be explored easily by foot, with spectacular scenery along the way.
The eight themed walks found in this book explore every corner of Gibraltar from its guns and defensive fortifications to its Moorish past. They cover the Upper Rock nature reserve, the history of the Royal Navy in Gibraltar and the length of the peninsula from the frontier to Europa Point, as well as a section dealing with nearby Spain. Between them these walks chart a broad spectrum of interests as well as providing a whole host of practical information for visitors to Gibraltar.
