A fun collection of pictures of Gibraltar, photos and images of our wonderful Rock of Gibraltar including the people, the apes and of course the Rock itself (el Peñon).
The Rock of Gibraltar
The most famous pictures of Gibraltar show the impressive structure of the Rock of Gibraltar, which is quite imposing and striking as you turn the corner from Estepona, Spain and drive down towards Gibraltar.
Here are a few photos and images of Gibraltar for you to enjoy:
Gibraltar has quite a unique airport as the airstrip runs across the border to Spain and is quite short. The airstrip stretches from the east to west sides of the Rock and has a main road running straight across it.
A new airport is under construction to cope with a greater influx of visitors and should be completed in 2011. The new airport is to be jointly used with Spain and will have a separate access from La Linea (Spain). At the same time, a tunnel access for cars and pedestrians will be used (at the east end of the runway) instead of the present system running across it; the runway is also being extended.
Although we refer to them as our Apes, these wild animals are actually Barbary Macaques tail-less monkeys and are a joy to watch. Caution must be taken though when approaching them and never feed the monkeys as it is both dangerous and against the law.
Gibraltar has a famous Trinity light-house at Europa Point, the southern tip of the Rock.
