Gibraltar, Gibraltar -- sometimes referred to as a country -- is a small peninsula that in fact is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom. It borders Spain to the north, and the land stretches only five kilometers from north to south and is just over two kilometers at its widest point from west to east. There is basically just one city with the same name, Gibraltar.

As soon as you cross immigrations, almost everything looks British, except for the climate. Street signs are in English, and the British and Gibraltar Pound are the official currencies. The Euro is accepted by most shops, but often at an exchange rate that does not work in your favour.

Gibraltar’s most iconic place is the infamous rock; you can hike up or take a cable car to visit. For a fee, you will get entrance to the caves and other sites on the rock. The Barbary macaques welcome you, or rather steal your food whenever they see their chance.
