Moorish Castle Gibraltar

Moorish Castle Gibraltar

High above and overlooking Casemates Square this building is the small square castle that can be seen today, however it was a complex network of defences which is now a major part of the modern housing estate known as Moorish Castle Estate where many Gibraltarians live today.  Below is an image to give some idea of what it looked like prior to the current housing estates.

Once again you can see how the amazing people of Gibraltar have adapted and integrated Moorish, Spanish and British heritage and turned it to good use.  A truly amazing nation like no other.
