                    Um, the Rock of Gibraltar is not in Spain.

                    It is in Gibraltar only.


                    How do I know? I live in Spain and work here in Gibraltar! The Rock is only in Gibraltar(which is a Protectorate of Great Britain).

                      How do I know? I live in Spain and work here in Gibraltar! The Rock is only in Gibraltar(which is a Protectorate of Great Britain).

                      --- Kapaibro, I know that you know all this already, but this is why I thought this could be the answer:

                      According to the Treaty of Sevilla, after the Anglo-Spanish War, it was agreed between the Government of Spain and the United Kingdom that a distance less than 1200 meters from the North Face of the Rock would be considered a “neutral ground”.

                      This “neutral ground” is in an isthmus that connects the Rock to mainland Spain.

                      Today, Spain does not acknowledge British sovereignty over Gibraltar beyond the fortified perimeter of the town as it was in 1704.

                      The United Kingdom claims that their title to the southern part of the isthmus is based on continuous possession over a long period.

                      Today the southern side of the isthmus contains an airport, a marina, housing and many other amenities of Gibraltar.

                      The people of Gibraltar do not want to be part of Spain, and wish to remain self-governing while remaining sovereign to the UK.

                      So from the Spanish point of view, the Rock does connect to Spain.

                      From the UK’s and the people of Gibraltar stance, Spain does not join the Rock.

                      --- I used to be stationed in Rota, lived in Jerez de la Fronterra, loved to drive down the coast to Algeciras, visit the Rock and the caves and apes, sometimes even hop on whatever was headed to Tangier, and spend the day wandering around over there ---

                      --- So what if I was wrong ? --- --- I like Gibraltar anyway !!!


                      --- And when I was there, Franco was still running things, so it has changed quite a bit !


                      --- Do the Guardia Civil still wear those hats ?

                            .
                            Oh yeah, the Guardia Civil are guys you don't want to mess with! My sister was stunned to see that they wore guns at the border(cos cops in NZ don't carry guns)! And I guy I worked with got both his wrists broken once when he was really drunk, and they arrested him because he didn't speak spanish. Broke his wrists while putting the cuffs on him(they're trained to know how to inflict a lot of damage doing seemingly innocuous things).

                            The Spanish throw tantrums every now and then and close the border for a few hours. Like when the Royal Navy had a nuclear sub in port for 3 days, they got miffy. and closed the border for 4 hours, and the navy personnel were warned not to go into La Linea. During the Tercenteniary celebrations, Princess Anne came over, so they closed the border for 6 hours! And they usually close the border for a couple of hours if a British MP visits.

                            For a while there in 2005 and 06 they were banning cruise ships that berthed in Gib from berthing in Spanish ports after. The ships had the anchor in the port, and get little boats to take the passengers to shore(really good for Florida retirees!). BUt the EU council decided they were behaving illegally. They apologised to the cruise companies, but not to Gibraltar.
