Grand Casemates Square, Gibraltar

3.4
Old as the city itself, Grand Casemates Square serves as Gibraltar's nightlife and commercial hub, with numerous pubs, restaurants, clubs, and shops. Bombproof barracks still stand on the street's northern end, housing a restaurant and an art gallery. After the Great Siege the area was cleared and turned into an esplanade, which hosted military parades and public hangings (the last of which occurred in 1864). Notice the excavated foundations of a 14th-century galley house that was built in the Moorish period but sank into the sand over the years. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Gibraltar trip simple and quick.

  • If you have money for it, buy a cup of coffee at one of the cafés on the attractive, historic square. Gibraltar is expensive, the restaurants are miserable. Seriously, there is no local food culture other than the foolish English fish ' n chips culture

  • We left the Landport Tunnel, stood at the map of the city, turned the corner - and here is the square ... Very small, though marked as "Grand", tightly packed with tables from nearby cafes and restaurants and just as tightly surrounded by businesses, inserted into what used to be casemates. But it is from here that Main Street begins, and on the turn to this street is a couple of well quite English phone booths - in the age of cellular communication it really is a landmark!
