Friends of Gibraltar
Unfortunately, many of these unique fortifications and buildings have been disastrously maltreated and neglected over many years. Gibraltar may be tiny – only 2.5 square miles - but it’s heritage is enshrined in a wealth of historic military and domestic architecture, the restoration and preservation of which is beyond the small Gibraltarian population to undertake alone. The Friends of Gibraltar has, therefore, been formed to help.
Aims of the Society
