Gibraltar is not a location that most folks ever think of visiting, but the history and uniqueness of the place make it truly special.
The country sits on a peninsula in Spain, but it is a British principality situated on the Mediterranean Sea. If it is a clear day, you can all the way across to Morocco from the top of the rock.
The British held the Rock during WWII and the caves that hid soldiers and supplies are still open for visitors. There is the beauty of magnificent caves with acoustics that allow for concerts today.
Riding up to the top of the Rock, you pass the colony of Barbary Apes; they are everywhere and ready to steal your food or your sunglasses if you happen to be in their path.
The view is spectacular and you end your visit in town with a spot of English tea or hearty ale.
