Gibraltar's permanent residents - Barbary Apes
Who’s the cheeky monkey then?
On The Rock at Gibraltar – this was as close as I wanted to get to one of the Barbary Apes (macaque monkeys). Walking up the hill, one leapt up and grabbed my hat but was disappointed when he discovered it was pinned to my shirt – (old sailing habit).
Across the bay is the old Spanish town of Algiceras whose history stretches back to Phoenician, Roman and Moorish times.
