Gibraltar

In Greek mythology Gibraltar was called Calpe, one of the Pillars of Hercules, a fitting name as military presence is still strong and almost invisible on this island. At less than seven square kilometres in size, this small treasure can be seen largely on foot or by taxi. Journey through the labyrinth made up of caves and tunnels, and discover the history and heritage behind one of the Mediterranean’s most unique destinations.
