This large lump of limestone stuck to the end of the Iberian
Peninsula is as famous for its bizarre geology as it is for its
overly-friendly furry friends. Though many countries have claimed
the beacon over the years, it's officially owned by the British
government and thus it is advised that tourists exchange Euros for
Pounds here for ease and economy. The Rock of Gibraltar is easily
conquered by cable car, but it's worthwhile to hire a guide (around
25 USD per person) to explain the countless caves and mites, and to
coax the wild monkeys to give a toothy grin while atop your head.
On clear days visitors can even view North Africa.
