The historical residential quarter of Gibraltar, with land marks such as the Garrison Library, Moorish Castle and Sacred Heart Church.
This area is primarily residential with few retail outlets and is densely populated with older buildings dating back 100 plus years and accessed via typically narrow streets. It is reminiscent of old European cities – a melting pot of Gibraltar’s deep historical architectural influences of Moorish, Spanish, Italian and English culture.
As Gibraltar’s economy grows, so too does the capacity to improve, modernise and refurbish this stunning area. Recently, developers have taken an interest in what was a decaying part of town; we are now enjoying the refurbishment of the Old Police Barracks into “loft” style apartments, and other small similar style conversions.
