My wife and I recently spent a full day in Gibraltar, the first time for both of us, on our two week adventure in Portugal, Spain, and of course Gibraltar. We had a great time touring "The Rock" and visiting the town of Gibraltar.... But...More

Lovely monument as you walk towards the frontier with Spain walking across the road over the runway, apparently signifying that Gibraltar is one of the longest inhabited places in Europe.

The Cradle of History is a monument which signifies that Gibraltar is one of the longest inhabited places in Europe. It is just after the runway when walking over from Spain. Looking a bit unloved when I visited.

Walking into Gibraltar from La Linea, yiunpass this monument. Snap a picture and move on. If you're coming from the cruise terminal -- unless you want to see the airport -- it's not worth a visit.

When you walk across the runway to go into Gibraltar this is the first landmark you see to welcome you. We could not get a closer look at it as it was surrounded by barriers and in the background is a playing field and bus...More

You walk by - that's fine. You don't, that's fine too. No special and unique event or monument. Nice.

This is in essence the welcome sign to Gibraltar, you will see it on your way in if you keep your eyes open. While it is better than your average welcome sign, I didn't find it that pleasing for the eyes. So don't be sad...More
