Gibraltar proudly showcases the legacy of its colourful multi-cultural history in the architectural treasures of Moorish, Spanish and British heritage.
A day spent exploring Gibraltar’s many historical sites is a rewarding experience. The peninsula’s North African influences can be seen most clearly in the Moorish Castle and Tower of Homage, overlooking the Bay, as well as in the Gibraltar Museum which is positioned over a 14th-century bath house. More recent military relics are to be discovered in the form of an extensive network of tunnels that lie below the Rock and which were used extensively during the Second World War. The Rock’s ancient geological origins can be glimpsed in vast limestone caverns such as St Michael’s Cave.
