  City Gates entrance
by bugalugs

You can tell by the city gates and the fortifications that Gibraltar had a huge military past. The gates lead into Casemates Square and were opened in 1727. This was because when the Spanish tried to take over Gibraltar this area was the old town and was badly damaged, it was then flattened and Casemates Square was formed.
This picture is taken inside the gates on the Casemates Square side. On the entrance it reads Grand Casemate Gates.
