Grand Casemates Square, Gibraltar

3.8
#3 of 12 in Historic Sites in Gibraltar
Old as the city itself, Grand Casemates Square serves as Gibraltar's nightlife and commercial hub, with numerous pubs, restaurants, clubs, and shops. Bombproof barracks still stand on the street's northern end, housing a restaurant and an art gallery. After the Great Siege the area was cleared and turned into an esplanade, which hosted military parades and public hangings (the last of which occurred in 1864). Notice the excavated foundations of a 14th-century galley house that was built in the Moorish period but sank into the sand over the years. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Gibraltar trip simple and quick.

  • A really good place to chill, have good fish and chips and a nice beer to go with it. A fine Sumatra and great for people watching
  • Nice, a bit dingy. Many parts could learn a bit from the Spanish by using some fresh white paint.
  • Great place to eat. Well worth a walk around to square. Everything seems to start and stop there. Great atmosphere.
  • Fabulous,visited for a meal at Tramonti so good we had a return visit ❤
