PostHeaderIcon Gilbralter: From The Top Of The Rock

Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory situated at the entrance to the Mediterranean, is home to approximately 30,000 people.  Today, Coroner’s Investigator Paul Beecroft takes us on a pictorial journey of the region, and to the top of “the rock.”

    Thanks so much for this. My great-great-grandmother was born there, and some day, I’d like to see Gibraltar in person….hmmm, maybe I can find a mystery there for my next Claudia Rose book.

  • I’d have to visit the lighthouse. I have a thing about lighthouses and the ocean. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow what a beautiful place. Maybe someday I’ll get out of the USA again. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

    A few years ago my husband and I had our catamaran sailed to Gibralter where we joined her for a Mediterranean adventure. Rounding the tip of Gibralter was thrilling. We had to stay in Gibralter for several days for some repairs. Interesting place.
