Gibraltar: tax free shopping and watching monkeys


Who comes from Andalusia and crosses the border, enters to a different world. Gibraltar, 41 kilometers northeast of Tarifa, is very British: It belongs to Britain since 1713. For tourists, there is not much offered. Yet every year, six million tourists visit the place. Their goal: the Main Street, where they can go shopping without paying taxes.
