Gibralter, Spain (Iberia)
Gibraltar is a British overseas territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean. It has an area of 2.6 sq miles and a northern border with Andalusia, Spain. The Rock of Gibraltar is the major landmark of the region. At its foot is the densely populated city area, home to almost 30,000 Gibraltarians and other nationalities.

Looming like some great ship off southern Spain, Gibraltar is a fascinating compound of curiosities. Despite bobbies on the beat, red post boxes and other reminders of 1960s England, Gibraltar is actually a cultural cocktail with Genoese, Spanish, North African and other elements which have made it fantastically prosperous. Naturally, the main sight is the awesome Rock; a vast limestone ridge that rises to 1,400 feet, with sheer cliffs on its northern and eastern sides. For the ancient Greeks and Romans the two great rocks marked the edge of the ancient world. Gibraltar’s location and highly defensible nature have attracted the covetous gaze of military strategists ever since.


8 Days at Sea


Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain
Las Palmas is the capital, together with Santa Cruz, and the most populous city in the Canary Islands. It enjoys a subtropical climate, with mild to warm temperatures predominating throughout the year. The Port of Las Palmas is not only the largest port of the Canary Islands, but also the most important port in the Mid-Atlantic, with the most traffic at the crossroads between Europe, Africa and America. It is one of the main ports of Spain. The city has great beaches, including Las Canteras, Las Alcaravaneras, la Laja, and Confital.

The city was founded in 1478 by Juan Rejón, head of the invading Castilian army, before engaging in war with the local aboriginal people of the Canary Islands, known as Guanches. In 1492, Christopher Columbus anchored in the Port of Las Palmas, spending time on the island before sailing to America, and stopped there again on the way back to Spain. Today, a museum is named after him - Casa Colón - in the Vegueta area of the city.

The historic district of Vegueta has regained great popularity as the meeting place of choice for young people on weekends, who fill its bars and discos. In the port area there are also many bars and nightclubs, particularly in the vicinity of Santa Catalina. During the Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, usually between January and February, you can enjoy popular Mogollon (dances) and galas of Franco and the drag queen.
