Гибралтар

The island of Gibraltar is a British overseas territory located near the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula, and shares a border with Spain. Measuring just four square miles, Gibraltar is home to countless species of wildlife and is a paradise for nature-lovers. Unique to Gibraltar are the Barbary Apes - the only wild primates left in all of Europe. These curious monkeys can be seen in their natural habitat and are sure to be a key attraction for younger passengers!
