  • Overview

    Today these influences are evident in the architecture, cuisine and customs of Gibraltar where you'll be met by an eclectic mix of cultures that has developed from the many settlers who have made Gibraltar their home. Gibraltar holidays incorporate this charming blend assuring guests a truly captivating stay.

    Despite the imposing appearance of the Rock, which during seven centuries of Moorish dominion was referred to as Jebel Tarik or Tarik's Mountain, after Tarik Ibn Zeyad the Berber Chief who led the Muslim invasion of Europe, Gibraltar is small. In total the area that it covers measures less than six square kilometres. It is the southernmost point of Europe and the only place in Europe where monkeys rein free in a semi-wild state. It is also steeped in history; an intertwining of civilisations and cultures which dates back many thousands of years. It is a living history reflected not just in the Gibraltarians themselves, but also in the many legacies that remain to this day, including a number of prehistoric caves, a medieval castle and 11th century baths, Georgian and Victorian buildings as well as architecture which reflects Portuguese, Genoese and Moorish influences. Holidays to Gibraltar are an ideal way to experience this range of cultures and reflect on Gibraltar’s fantastic history.

    Shopping

    Holidays in Gibraltar are also great for those who want to indulge in a bit of spending. Gold jewellery, watches, perfumes, porcelain figures and designer wear are perhaps the best buys, although cigars and spirits tend to be the most popular duty free purchases.

    Twin Centre Holidays

    Gibraltar holidays, although fantastic in their own right, can also be combined with a stay in the Costa del Sol. Classic Collection Holidays can offer guests a combined stay in one of our luxury properties in Marbella, Estepona, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Nerja or Mijas.

    Cuisine

    With its cultural combination, Gibraltar holidays allow guests to experience a whole range of tastes. You can find most ethnic and international cuisine in Gibraltar including Indian, Chinese, Thai, Argentinean, Japanese, Moroccan, Kosher, English, Danish, French, Spanish and Italian. Fish lovers are particularly well catered for with Catalan Bay on the east side and the marinas featuring a number of restaurants specialising in sea-food. For lighter bites there is no shortage of English and Irish pubs, and Irish coffee houses.
