The British Overseas Territory of Gibralta is located at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsular at the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea. It is a small territory measuring only 6 sq. km and is bordered to the north with the Province of Cadiz in the Andalusia region of Spain. It's hard to sum up the culture of the island as its inhabitants have come from such diverse origins. There are clear Spanish and British influences in Gibralta, which comes as no surprise, but there are also Genoese, Maltese, Portuguese and German influences on the rock. There are also a small number of Gibralta residents that are of Jewish Shephardic, Moroccan and Indian origin. However, the influence of the British is strong, especially given that English is the language of government, commerce, education and the media on Gibralta.
For nature lovers, Gibralta has a wide range of flora and forna and is home to over 500 different plant species. The rock is also famous for the Barbary Macaque monkeys which are the only wild monkeys to be found in Europe.
Passenger and cargo ships anchor in the Gibraltar Harbour. Also, a ferry links Gibraltar with Tangier in Morocco.
Tangier-Med is a cargo port located around 40 km to the east of the Moroccan city of Tangier and is one of the largest ports on the Mediterranean Sea and in Africa by capacity, and was opened in 2007. The second phase of construction in the port began in 2009 in order to cater for the growing demand of the port's services. As well as catering for cargo, Tangier-Med is also home to a new passenger terminal, which replaces the city of Tangier's port as the destination for ferries and passenger ships arriving from Europe. Located inside the terminal building you will fine a Bureau de Change, ATMs, and a small shop selling newspapers, book, cigarettes and snacks etc. There is also a café on the upper floor.
The history of Tangier is very rich, due to the historical presence of many civilizations and cultures starting from before the 5th century BC. Between the period of being a strategic Berber town and then a Phoenician trading centre to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a refuge for many cultures. In 1923, Tangier was considered as having international status by foreign colonial powers, and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers and businessmen.
