Gibraltar Area Guide

Gibraltar The history goes back along time about Gibraltar. Since the Moorish leader Tarik based his troop-ships there in the 8th century. Then in 1462 Britain captured the Rock in 1704 during the War of the Spanish Succession.  Its cession to Great Britain was confirmed by the terms of the Treaty of Utrecht back in 1713 when it became a British possession. Throughout its history Gibraltar has harboured successive waves of immigrants from widely  differing cultural backgrounds. The establishment of British rule  brought about the departure of the Spanish inhabitants and their  place was then taken by a collection of  immigrants including  Moroccan Jews, and Portuguese who combined with British then  formed harmonious community as it is today.
Gibraltar has two  main shopping areas that are recommended.  One being the Main street, and the other the Irish street.  Both of these shopping areas are packed with many shops such  as the ever so popular Marks & Spencer's British Holme Stores,  and many Duty free shops that sell electrical products. A long with the typical British pubs, restaurants, its just like shopping in the uk.
The currency is the Gibralterian pound, similar to the English currency. You are allowed to use the English currency there but you may be given Gibralterian currency in your change.
