Why hire a car in Gibraltar?

Gibraltar is a territory that belongs to the British colony but it does not belong to the United Kingdom. This colony is located in the south of the Iberian peninsula, between two continents and two seas. It belonged to Spain until 1704, when it was turned over to English hands after the war of succession.

Also known as The Rock, Gibraltar forms the only opening between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean; hence from the military point of view, this is a strategic point in order to control the maritime access to the Mediterranean Sea.

Before hiring a car in Gibraltar, you should know that the most crowded part of Gibraltar is its main street, which is actually its real name. You will find a great number of stores with all types of products tax free.

Notwithstanding, although the city’s airport is located closed to the city center, it is worth hiring a car at the Gibraltar Airport due to the independence and convenience you get by not having to depend on the public transportations. Besides, you will be able to hire the car to visit el Peñon de Gibraltar.

On the other hand, you should visit the natural park in Gibraltar. The upper part of this rocky formation, also known as the Hercules Column, was declared natural reserve in 1993 and is famous for being home to the Gibraltar’s macaque monkeys, that have the singularity of being the only primates that enjoy freedom in the whole European continent.

Within the reserve itself, we find the San Miguel Cave and the Alameda—a botanic garden that also has varieties of endemic flora; it is also possible to find in its interior a sample of some species brought from overseas.
