1-TRAFALGAR CEMETERY Situated just south of the city walls,this was used as gibraltar´s military cemetery in the early 19th century.its name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, although only two of those buried there actually died of wounds suffered in the battle (1805).the Trafalgar day is held here every year.
2-ROCK APES (MACACA SYLVANUS) World famous, and perhaps Gibraltar´s most important tourist attraction, the barbary apes macaca sylvanus, are actually tailless monkeys.
ORIGIN… They are natives of North Africa,their presence in Gibraltar probably dates from the early days of the british garrison when it is presumed that they were imported as pets or even game, inevitably finding the rough limestone cliffs and scrub vegetation a congenial habitat.
3-ST MICHAEL´S CAVE. Located more than 300 metres above sea level,with magnificent atalactites and stalagmites,the cave has been famous since ancient time. During world war II the cave was prepared as an emergency hospital, but happily it was never used for this purpose.the main chamber has been transformed into a large subterranean auditorium,and provides a unique venue for concerts,ballet,drama,fashion shows and other social events.
4-CHARLES V WALL. In 1540, the turks launched an attack on Gibraltar prompting Charles v to syrengthen the defences of the rock.The most famous of these improvements became known as Charles V wall, which protected the city from possible future attacks from the south.
5-CASEMATES SQUARE Named after the british barracks located at the north of the square,this area has served many surposes.formrly the site of publics executions. Nowadays,this commercial and social square contains remains of an old moorish galley house and a gun mounted on a koehler depression Gun Carriage,of the type developed during the Great Siege.

7-THE CONVENT This building, situated towards the southern end of main street,has been the official residence of Gibraltar´s Governors since 1728.It was once a convent of Franciscan Friars,hence its name. A ceremonial guard at the main entrance is provided by soldiers of the royal gibraltar regimen.An elaborate and colourful parade of Changing of the Guard is performed outside this historical venue.a few times year.
7-THE ROCK OF GIBRALTAR. The Rock of Gibraltar seems foreboding from a distance;a great slab of jagged Jurassic Limestone towering high above its surroundings. Its natural woodland was cleared for firewood by soldiers,at other times,carpeted with brightly coloured flora and wild flowers. The porous limestone means that there is never a shortage of water so,when the iberian Peninsula is arid and brown,The Rock is essentially “green”,covered in shrubs and trees,such as nettle trees,carob,eucalyptus and wild olive.
