Gibraltar Day Trip Itinerary
You'll be picked up from El Rompido first thing in the morning, ready to set off in the direction of the Rock of Gibraltar, which has been British Territory since the start of the 18th century and a topic of debate between Britain and Spain ever since. And not for nothing: the promontory is a strategically important location in the famous Strait of Gibraltar.
Travel by bus through Andalusia to the border, and, once you've crossed over, you'll embark on a guided tour of "The Rock" and Saint Michael's Cave, one of Gibraltar's most popular tourist attractions. Part of an extensive network of limestone caves marked by impressive stalactites, the grotto has a long and intriguing history and has been used by military forces since the Middle Ages.
Next, you'll head to Europa Point, the southernmost point of The Rock, from which you'll enjoy spectacular views over the Bay of Gibraltar and over to the Rif mountains in Morocco. Punta Europa is also home to the Shrine of Our Lady of Europe and the Ibrahim-al-Ibrahim Mosque.
Continuing your discovery of Gibraltar, your next stop will be getting to know some of its most important inhabitants: the famous monkeys! The Barbary Macaques are the only species of primate to live in the wild in Europe, and according to legend, as long as they live on The Rock, it will remain under British control.
Finally, you'll have free time to explore Gibraltar at your own pace, eat in one of its restaurants or go shopping, before making the return journey to El Rompido.
Please note that as Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory, and entry requirements are generally the same as UK entry requirements. You will need to show your passport or national ID card upon entry and nationals of some countries will also need a visa.
