Gibraltar Travel Information


Gibraltar Flag Gibraltar is British Overseas Territory located on an peninsula at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula, and connected by an isthmus to Spain. Gibraltar lies at the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea (from the Atlantic Ocean) and overlooks the Straits of Gibraltar.

Although Gibraltar was captured by Britain in 1704, and ceded by Spain to Britain by the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, Spain continues to assert a claim to the territory. Gibraltarians have however strongly rejected proposals of accepting Spanish sovereignty in referendums in 1967 and 2002.

As of 2008. Gibraltar had an estimated population of 29,286.
