3 cultural things to do in Gibraltar

If you’re planning a Gibraltar wedding, you may also want to spend a little more time there, soaking up the sights and the atmosphere. If you’re culturally minded, there are lots of attractions you can visit to see more of the nation. Listed below are three of the most popular destinations for those wanting a little more culture.

Europa Point

Europa Point is the southernmost point of Gibraltar, meaning that visitors can take in beautiful views on their trip here. There are several sights that can be seen at Europa Point, including The Europa Point Lighthouse, Harding’s Battery & the Shrine Of Our Lady Of Europe, so you can spend an entire day here if you have any extra time after your wedding in Gibraltar.

The Rock Of Gibraltar

The Rock Of Gibraltar is perhaps the most famous monument in Gibraltar, also being located near Europa Point. It’s made of limestone and tourists who choose to climb to the top will be rewarded with some gorgeous views – if you’re into hiking, this is an ideal day out. The Rock Of Gibraltar was celebrated by the Romans as one of the Pillars Of Hercules, and cultural visitors may also want to take a look at the ruins of the Moorish Castle that lies on the Rock Of Gibraltar, also including the Tower Of Homage.

The Great Siege Tunnels

The Great Siege Tunnels are a labyrinthian network of tunnels found inside the Rock of Gibraltar. They were created and dug by the British army in the 18th century to ward off the French and Spanish armies that were trying to take Gibraltar back from Britain. Some parts of The Great Siege Tunnels can still be visited by tourists, although other parts have been closed off due to safety reasons. A visit to The Great Siege Tunnels could be combined with a trip to the Rock of Gibraltar.

As can be seen above, there are several cultural excursions you can go on as part of your trip – you may even want to incorporate one of these cultural activities into your wedding in Gibraltar For more information, contact Sweet Gibraltar Weddings today.
