An eclectic mix of British culture and Spanish influence, Gibraltar has it's own unique charm.

Sip on a Tinto de Verano while you eat your fish supper, spot Dolphins on the bay after a delicious afternoon tea, or climb the Mediterranean Steps to the top of that famous Rock for your morning exercise.

The Rock, by the way, dominates the entire landscape, sitting at 1,938ft tall. The upper section is covered by a nature reserve which remarkably is home to around 300 Barbary macaques.

A journey to the top is a must-do (many use the cable car) and from there you can watch the monkeys while enjoying the incredible views from the summit. On a clear day you can even see across to the north coast of Africa, which is 14-miles away.

Oh, and one word of advice. Best keep your wits about you when those macaques are close.
