On the 21st June 2016 Chief Minister Fabian Picardo opened the Windsor Suspension Bridge along the Royal Anglian Way. The 71 meter long bridge connects an abandoned battery with the Hayne's Cave Battery crossing a 50 meter deep ravine. Always great for adventure enthusiasts and photo opportunities!
From there we will drive to the north side of the Rock to visit the Great Siege Tunnels, something not to be missed! This site explains a lot of the history of Gibraltar under siege in the 18th century. The tunnels are full of tales from the historic wars and information on how the tunnels were carved out and the stories behind the people involved in their use.
The construction of which was commenced in the 8th century AD (possibly AD 711) but there is no record of when it was completed. Its walls enclose a considerable area reaching down to Town. The Tower of Homage is the highest tower of the period of Islamic rule in the Iberian Peninsula, and the Qasbah of the Castle is the largest in the area. The Castle itself played a prominent part in the Muslim invasion of the Iberian Peninsula. Part of the castle itself housed the prison of Gibraltar until the prison was relocated in 2010.
The various exhibits within this area of great historical value depict scenes of how the civilian population lived during those hard times and relate the quaint and often fascinating stories that have passed down to our days of how the first British settlers of Gibraltar had to cope with life.
The most intensive phase of tunnelling in Gibraltar's history came during the Second World War, when the territory played a vital role in the North Atlantic and Mediterranean theatres. The total length of the tunnels increased greatly during the war, from 7 miles (11 km) to 25 miles (40 km).
The late 1800's saw 4 of these giants built by the naval authorities of Britain, with a view to securing their holdings. 2 were built for Gibraltar, while another 2 were built for Malta.
Situated at the most southern point of Gibraltar, is where the Europa Point Lighthouse can be found along with spectacular views across The Straits of Gibraltar into Northern Africa, Morocco.
