Grand Casemates Square, Gibraltar

3.5
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.
