This is a lovely Monument and attraction you see just before you cross the frontier on the way to Spain. What a lovely sight to see in Gibraltar. Gibraltar is such an amazing place.

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.

If you walk across the runway (or drive) it's on your right hand side behind the barricade. Would be even better if you could get closer for a photo.

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