Has anyone visited Gibraltar?
Gib is ok for a quick visit, especillay going up to St. Michaels caves, with the fantastic acoustics and the stalagmite and stalagtites etc.
I would not want to spend much time there though as it is grubby and run down.
We used to go there quite often when my sister lived close to it in Spain for shopping.
If you go up to the Caves be on the look out for the Barbary apes up there. They are very cheeky and can turn nasty if you dont let them have what they want out of your bag:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Thanks Veronica

Planning on staying for 3 nights, so a short visit. We plan on staying at the Rock Hotel.
This was recommended by a friend who has lived for a long time in Gibraltar. Now livng in Spain 5 kms away as he has retired.

Hi Siobhan,

There is a very vicious breed of monkey called "the gurkle" that lives on the rock of Gibraltar. Make sure when staying at the rock hotel to lock your bedroom window at night. "They steal everything, and you could end up looking like a black eyed susan !

:D
