2017 Weekly photo challenge (week 12) Historical 

Gibraltar is steeped in history, where ever you go in this small but perfectly formed place you can see it to abundance. From the Tower of Homage, also know as Moorish Castle (you can see this above), which stands sentry above the old Upper Town, and the city walls and fortifications of the Northern Defences.

Around town we have lots of lovely old buildings including the beautifully restored King’s Bastion (below).

From the outside, you wouldn’t know behind these walls there is a ten pin bowling alley, cinema and ice skating rink would you?

If you are ever on Gibraltar’s Main Street on a Saturday lunchtime, you are sure to see some living history in action, when the historical reenactment society parades past in uniforms of years gone by. Each Saturday, the former soldiers reenact the Ceremony of the Keys to the delight of many passers by and tourists.

Wearing different uniforms for different occasions, they are photographed and watched on their trip down to Casemates Square and back again.

I’m joining with Nana Cathy and Wild Daffodil for this weekly photo challenge.

    1. Hmm just a bit. Certain politicians on the UK side and media outlets are stirring it a bit though which doesn’t help. The Brexit negotiations were bound to be tricky for Gibraltar and that’s why we voted 96% to stay in the EU. Sadly not enough voters agreed with us…
