Unusual monkey - Gibraltar
Unusual monkey The Rock Review

Favorite thing:

Imagine my surprise as I was sitting quietly at the top of the rock when I heard this noise and this chicken ran in front of me!!!!! Even I knew it wasnt a monkey :-)
Seems there are two breeds of chickens living on the rock and they belong to the people who own the cafe.

Uncle Albert - Gibraltar
Uncle Albert

Favorite thing:

In the middle 1960's I had an aunt and uncle who were living in Gibraltar, he worked for the British Civil Service. I was about 14 years old at the time and they were going to pay for me to go out there on holiday, something my mum couldnt afford. But then all of a sudden my uncle died, he was only 51 years old. He was buried there and his wife came back to England.


Fondest memory:
When we visited we found the cemetary and thanks to the poeple in the office at the cemetary we also found his grave. He was a lovely man and it was really nice for me to pay my respects at his graveside these many years later

Duke of Kent House - Gibraltar

Duke of Kent House

Duke of Kent House

Favorite thing:

The Tourist Information office at Cathedral Square which is in the above tip, was the house of the Duke of Kent.
The plaque says that Prince Edward of Kent who was the 4th son of George III and father of Queen Victoria lived here during his time as Governor of Gibraltar in 1802.
The plaque was unveiled by his great great great grandson Duke of Kent on 18th October 1989.

This building is across the square from the Bristol Hotel

Tourist Information Cathedral Square - Gibraltar

Tourist Information Cathedral Square

Tourist Information

Favorite thing:

There are 6 Tourist Information Centres in Gibraltar.
At the airport
At the Cruise terminal
At the border
At Casements Square
At Gibraltar Tourist Board, Cathedral Square
Tel No. 350 74950
Fax No. 350 74943
The coach park.
We went in the one in Casements Square and the one in Cathedral Square, and I thought both of them were very lacking in information! In fact I dont think the tourists boards do enough to 'sell' Gibraltar.
There are very few leaflets, maps that are very inadequate.

Celebrating - Gibraltar
Celebrating

Favorite thing:

As Gibraltar is celebrating 300 years the residents obviously think its a time for celebration, these apartments just near the Cable car had english, british and gibraltarian flags waving.
