Gibraltar
Gibraltar is a British overseas area. It is located in southwest Europe, specifically in Spain's southern coast, a strategic location on Strait of Gibraltar that links the Atlantic and Mediterranean.

Previously called the Phoenicians Calpe, one of the columns of Hercules. Today Gibraltar is also known as "Gib" or "the Rock".

Gibraltar Strait prevents partial flow of seawater between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, so that salinity in the Mediterranean is relatively high. In earlier geological periods was Mediterranean fully closed and seawater evaporated just like the Dead Sea.


Gibraltar is currently the only place in Europe where there are monkeys living in the wild.
