Now a powerful Online Gambling business centre and future E-Currency Hub, Gibraltar is also very popular as a tourist destination. This is because the Rock was the Pillars of Hercules of the ancient Greeks as it marked the mythical god’s conquest and the western boundary of their world. Consequently, Gibraltar was also vital in the launch of the Moorish Empire into Iberia in 711AD. Most recently, Gibraltar was then conquered by the Spanish during the ‘Reconquista’ and then ultimately conquered by the British in 1704, which it has remained to date.
