Gibraltar is a small, rocky enclave of the United Kingdom on the Iberian Peninsula. Across the Straits of Gibraltar lies Morocco. The Straits of Gibraltar connect the Atlantic Ocean with the Mediterranean Sea.
Gibraltar was captured by the British in the 18th century, and has remained in their hands ever since, although Spain contests this. The Rock of Gibraltar is a major landmark, and is famous for its Barbary apes, the only primate in Europe.
