A small peninsula located on the Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula near the southern tip of Spain, Gibraltar is a [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} British]] Overseas Territory in Southern Europe, and was where the Moors first landed in Europe (the name "Gibraltar" may be derived from the Arabic phrase Jabal Tariq, literally Tariq's mount, after an early leader of the Muslim conquest of Iberia), dominated by the famed [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_of_Gibraltar Rock of Gibraltar]]. It is also the only part of the UK in mainland Europe, and one of the only two British territories where people drive on the right side of the road, the other being the UsefulNotes/BritishIndianOceanTerritory.

AKA The Rock, it remains an important military location for [[UsefulNotes/BritsWithBattleships the British Armed Forces]]. Gibraltar has over the years become synonymous with the notion of an impregnable fortress, with other prominent fortresses and military bases around the world ending up with the nickname "the Gibraltar of X". As one of the Pillars of Hercules, it is a vital access point from the Mediterranean into the North Atlantic. (Rather ironically, one of the proposed African Pillars of Hercules is... Monte Hacho, in Ceuta, which is a Spanish territory that would but for the vagaries of history be in UsefulNotes/{{Morocco}}. Naturally, the Moroccans are about as pleased with this arrangement as the Spaniards are about Gibraltar.)
