  • Gibraltar

    The Straits of Gibraltar is where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. Gibraltar has a huge amount of history and is therefore well worth a visit. You can see the Barbary Macaques, a rare species of tailless monkeys and the only free to roam primates in Europe, at Apes’ Den. According to legend, if the Apes leave Gibraltar it will cease to be British. Watch out for monkey business though, as they can be mischievous!!

    The Pompidou Centre in Málaga is hidden beneath a ‘rubik’ like cube, whose colours allow the sun to pass through them as it rises over the horizon. The symbolising colours are red, green and yellow. The cube seems imposing enough, but there are two floors beneath the surface. There is also an events hall, a café and a store.
