“Welcome to Gibraltar” is the first sign you see when you enter there. There are several welcome signs in the city. According to the Official website Visit Gibraltar “you’ll experience great Gibraltarian hospitality along with our proud British traditions”. Well, it’s true they have a nice city center with lots of coffees and shoppings. All in the UK style and the prices in pound. It was nice to see those red buses driving around. The Rock of Gibraltar is really impressive!
A hint if you are driving a car is to use one parking in La Linea. You can easily walk to the border within minutes. It is easier and cheaper. After crossing the board you can take a public bus to the city center. We paid 3 euros for a return ticket. Gibraltar airport is also just over the border. In fact people, bikes, buses, cars…everybody crosses the airport runway! Of course there are traffic lights, don’t worry about that! 🙂
“Gibraltar colloquially known as The Rock, is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom sitting at the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Spain to the north …” You can read more of Gibraltar at Wikitravel and Wikipedia.
