What to see & do in Gibraltar
Gibraltar Botanic Gardens - The Gibraltar Botanic Gardens, also called La Alameda Gardens, span over an area of about 6 hectares. The gardens were commissioned by the British Governor of Gibraltar General George Don in 1816 for it to become a recreational area for the soldiers stationed in the fortress when off duty. The gardens house plants of native species and also others that were imported. Some of the most notable plant species in the Alameda Gardens are Canary Islands Dragon Tree, Stone Pine, European Nettle Tree, Canary Island Date Palm, and Australian Silk Oak.
Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park - When the Alameda Conservation Park began in 1994, it started off with several parrots, tortoises, and monkeys that were confiscated from illegal traders. In 1996, the Alameda Miniature Golf Course was cleared and converted into a small conservation park. The park's main purpose was to be home to confiscated animals, but now also takes part in the care of native species considered for future re-introduction to the Upper Rock Nature Reserve. Some of the species in the park include Vietnamese Potbelly Pig, Asian Small-clawed Otter, Long Tailed Macaque, Prairie Dog, Green Iguana, Spur-thighed Tortoise, Hermann's Tortoise, African Grey Parrot, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, and Senegal Parrot. The park was opened to public in 2002.
St. Michael's Cave - St. Michael's Cave is a network of limestone caves situated in the Upper Rock Nature Reserve at the height of more than 300 meters above sea level. It is a very popular tourist attraction inside the Rock of Gibraltar due to the colorfully lit cave formations and the displays documenting the history of the caves. The largest chamber, called the Cathedral Cave, is used as an auditorium due to its natural acoustic properties. It has a concrete stage and a seating capacity of over 100.
Moorish Castle - The Moorish Castle is a medieval fortification in Gibraltar, consisting of several gates, buildings, and fortified walls. Its most notable features are the Tower of Homage and the Gate House.
