The Rock of Gibraltar
When we reach the southern border of La Linea de la Concepcion (Cadiz), we’ll come across this British territory, known as the Gibraltar rock. After crossing its border, ‘La Verja’ (the gate) as it was popularly known in Spain, we’ll enter a destination located to the south of Andalusia even though it has nothing to do with this region.
Gibraltar is an ancient colony that belongs to the United Kingdom, and in 1969 it changed its status to Overseas British Territory.
