Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Gibraltar  /  Main Street

Main Street, Gibraltar

3.0
Running through the old town, Main Street offers numerous shopping, dining, and clubbing opportunities. Dating back to the 14th century, the street is lined with historic buildings and churches exhibiting a specific blend of Moorish, Portuguese, Genoese, Spanish, and British Regency architectural styles. The street branches out in several places, leading to smaller shopping lanes and byways. Don't miss the section that belonged to the Irish in the 19th century, when Gibraltar was divided into different quarters. The square at the northern end of the street--once the stage for public executions--today hosts bars, restaurants, and nightclubs.
