Having Gibraltar just down the road is a huge bonus for those living in Spain who simply cannot cope without traditional British products. Every weekend boot-loads of sausages and seedless grapes make the journey across the boarder into Spanish homes.
Gibraltar does, however, extend beyond the supermarket and a trip up to Top Rock is an interesting visit for adults and children alike. The monkeys indigenous to the rock are the most northerly pack in the world and happily share their habitat with the curious tourists who come to watch them.
The natural caves, formed by water over millions of years, provide a dramatic setting to enjoy a concert, and the warren of man made tunnels that riddle the rock give some indication of the battalion that it was, not too long ago.
