When you are planning your spring or summer
holiday, you will surely want to spend it somewhere that offers plenty of sun,
sea and sand... somewhere that is rich in history, offers no shortage of
shopping and other tourist opportunities and is home to truly welcoming people.
So how could you choose anything less than a holiday in Gibraltar?
Here at Visit Gibraltar (http://www.visitgibraltar.gi),
we can think of a few more reasons to board that plane.
Fundamentally, when you book a Gibraltar holiday, you
have a choice between seasonal events and the attractions that this part of the
world offers all year round. Or, of course, you could mix the two, as most
visitors do. However you take your holiday, we’re sure you’ll want to be back
to enjoy in Gibraltar this summer
Top events that we simply must tell you about
if you are interested in Gibraltar
travel include one that is going on right now: the Gibraltar Spring
Festival 2013, which lasts until late June. That means that you still have the
chance to join in with such events as the Arts & Crafts Market in Casemates
Square on Saturday 25th May, the Celebration of Opera organised by
the Gibraltar Philharmonic Society on Thursday 30th May and Miss
Gibraltar 2013 in June.
Book your accommodation in Gibraltar now, and
you could also be here in time for the 1st Gibraltar Fringe
Festival, a feast of theatre performances, music, dance, children’s shows, busking
and more, taking place at the Alameda Botanic Gardens from 20th to 23rd June.
Don’t forget the Gibraltar Darts Trophy, either, which will be held from 28th
whole host of permanent attractions
However, as great as such events are, anyone who
has lived in or visited Gibraltar will tell you that so much of what makes the
place so exciting in the here and now relates to its enchanting past, with the
Rock of Gibraltar being the region’s landmark and home to a Moorish Castle and
nature reserve. Oh, and you’ll also find some of the hundreds of Barbary
macaques that are so synonymous with the territory.
The ancestors of those particular residents
were around long before Gibraltar was captured by the British in the early 18th
century, but despite this, a legend persists that for as long as they exist in
the territory, it will remain under British rule. In any case, there are many
more clues of a British heritage for those enjoying Gibraltar breaks, from the traditional
red phone boxes and post boxes to the language that remains prevalent across
as a visitor, it’s more likely that you will be too riveted by attractions and
activities including shopping on Main Street, sports and recreation, bars and
bistros and more. Simply peruse our wider website here at Visit Gibraltar (http://www.visitgibraltar.gi
