"View of the strait of Gibraltar and the two continents Europe and Africa"

Gibraltar is a 7km2 British overseas territory located on the southern end tip of the mainland Spain at the entrance of the Mediterranean, known for the Rock of Gibraltar, a 426m limestone ridge at its centre.

It is a remnant of the times of massive naval battles, captured to protect the mouth of the Mediterranean. Nowadays, ‘the rock’ is an intriguing blend of English and Spanish culture.
