Where

Casemate Gates, Gibraltar

Casemate Square is one of the two main areas people congregate in Gibraltar, currently for fun and entertainment, but that wasn’t always the case. It was under the control of Spain until the Treaty of Utrecht in the early seventeen hundreds when Britain received control. The word casemate comes from the Spanish term meaning a fortified position, chamber or an armoured enclosure; in fact, early seventeenth-century Spanish plans show this area as La Barcina.

Most of the popular open-air restaurants and vendors for food and drink are located here whereas Main Street is the area where the tourists shop alongside local residents; finding everything needed and often more than is expected at first glance. The Casemate Square area and Main Street run parallel to each other and visitors can find local history and culture entwined by visiting sites such as Saint Andrew’s Church.Casemates Square Gibraltar One other comforting fact that visitors can take comfort in is that both the Main

Street and Casemate Square are preferable for first-time visitors since it is a public place that is not frequented by people with unscrupulous intentions due to the crowds of people that can be found here night and day alike. Gibraltarians are proud of the Casemate Square which they consider their central plaza, is located just a short distance away from the Gibraltar wall entrance and considered the principal entryway into Gibraltar. The street leading to the Main Street passes by Casemate Square.
