About the location
The pace of life for residents of the South district is relaxed, far from the madding crowds, although still boasts some of Gibraltar’s most popular tourist attractions. For beachgoers, Camp Bay (known to locals and Rosia) and Little Bay are ideal. With seawater swimming pools and easy bathing access, along with restaurants and kiosks, the day can easily be spent there unwinding. Europa Point is the most southerly point of Gibraltar and is where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean (the “Strait of Gibraltar”). Boasting stunning views across to Africa, this is where you will find the Trinity Lighthouse, the Sikorski Memorial, Harding’s Battery, Shrine of our Lady of Europe and The Mosque. The Alameda Botanical Gardens offer a little bit of serenity and greenery. Established in 1816, the gardens home stunning flora and fauna, including rare and indigenous plant species. They also boast an outdoor theatre, guided tours and, if you’re feeling romantic, a perfect venue for your wedding. Adjacent to these gardens is the Cable Car. Built in 1966, the cable cars travel up the Rock at a speed of 5 metres per second, making the overall travel time approximately six minutes. Military history is never far away. Parson’s Lodge fortress was perhaps one the most strategically important places in Gibraltar due to its position over Rosia Bay (which, was also the Bay that Nelson’s body was brought ashore on The Victory). Lovingly restored, the fortress is a must for any military enthusiast. Similarly, the 100 Ton Gun at Napier of Magdala Battery is a treat for anyone interested in military weapons. The Trafalgar Cemetery holds the remains of those killed in sea battles, most notably those of the battle of Trafalgar.
