  Port Map

Gibraltar is the famed headland guarding the entrance to Mediterranean from the Atlantic. It is connected to Spain to the north, with Morocco to the south across the Straits.

The scenery is dominated by the towering 1,396 ft 'the Rock' that guards the Straits, named by the Arabs' Gebel el Tarik (Tarik's Rock). British for around 300 years, the unique setting of Gibraltar unites the oddly familiar (from Marks & Spencer to the helmeted policemen) - with the extrovert Mediterranean mood. The pubs and shops in Main Street and Irish Town are worth a visit. Take a cable-car to enjoy the views to nearby Africa. Don't miss the chance to see St Michael's Cave, Siege Tunnels and famous Barbary apes.

The Rock of Gibraltar and its counterpart in Northern Africa (Mt Abyla) were known in ancient times as the Pillars of Hercules. In 711 AD, the Moors (Arabs from North Africa) landed there and named the rock "Jebel al-Tarik". Spain conquered Gibraltar in 1462, but during the 1704 Spanish Succession War, it was taken by the British. In 1713, under the Treaty of Utrecht, Gibraltar was formally assigned to Great Britain. Since then, the territory's ownership is a matter for discussion between the UK and Spain.

In 2017, Port Gibraltar had scheduled a total of 257 cruise ship visits and handled over 400,000 passengers. These numbers showed an increase over 2016, when the cruise port was visited 225 times and handled around 350,000 passengers.
