Tour Around Gibraltar

Ehlzhbeta Chegarova - prosto_gost • 3 minutes read • June 27th, 2016


was the first European port after the ocean passage.
It is about ten to fifteen minutes on foot from the ship to the gates leading to the Old Town.
The main street, consisting of shops and cafes, is filled with tourists.
We are moving along the street to a funicular, the main tourist attraction in the city. We met monkeys on the way that feel at ease among people and cars.
Wild monkeys living here, magots, all have names, are counted and protected by law. There is a belief that 


will stay British as long as there is at least one monkey.
We saw a long line at the cable car. Of course, there were two large cruise ships moored in the tiny state! We estimated, taking into account the capacity of a cabin (16-20 persons) and their number (only two), that we would have to stand for a long time, so we went to a nearby cafe to drink beer and use the free Internet.
We easily climbed the 


in half an hour.
Of course, we were greeted by the local inhabitants and, after the inspection of our bags, they got tired of us. By the way, it’s forbidden to feed the Barbary macaques (magots).
We quickly checked if the entire state can fit in one picture...
...and went to our ship.
