It was completed in 1560 and was the Convent until the early 1800's. It then became the Chapel for the Governor of Gibraltar. Its really nice inside, quiet and peaceful. And it is open all day, every day.

Mary artefacts are on show including a silver chalice inscribed 1710 and has the coat of arms of Queen Anne.
The Chapel is used at the army chapel.
The original gates were built in 1551 and some in 1883 these I think are part of the newer ones.
It was around here also that a pirate called Barbarossa who attacked Gibraltar and captured many of its people to sell as slaves.
City Gates entrance
This picture is taken inside the gates on the Casemates Square side. On the entrance it reads Grand Casemate Gates.
The British have now been established on the Rock for 300 years. A ceremony is held twice a year where the Governor of Gibraltar wo dresses in his full uniform is handed the keys to Gibraltar, which is their emblem. This is done at sunset by the Port Sergeant. Lots of Gibraltarians turn out for this event. The people of Gibraltar known as Gibraltarians are happy to remain under British jurisdiction. In 1967 they actually had a vote and over 12,000 voted to stay under British rule and 44 voted to return to Spanish rule
Admiral Nelson statue
As it was 200 years since his death this statue of Nelson has been erected in Gibraltar and unveiled in Gibraltar on 28th October 2005.
I cannot remember the exact time but I think the last ride up the cable car is about 5.45pm. I remember thinking it was a bit early! So check before you go.
