Gibraltar (English: Gibraltar) is one of the 14 British overseas territories and the smallest one. It is located at the end of the Iberian Peninsula and is the gateway to the Mediterranean.
Gibraltar has an area of approximately 6 square kilometers, and is bordered by the province of Cadiz, Andalusia, Spain in the north. It is the only area where the United Kingdom has land contact with the European continent. The Rock of Gibraltar is one of the main landmarks of Gibraltar. The population of Gibraltar is concentrated in the southern part of the region, housing more than 30,000 people from Gibraltar and other ethnic groups. The number of residents includes resident Gibraltarians, some resident British (including members of the British Army in Gibraltar) and non-British residents. It does not include visiting tourists and short stays.
The population is more than 30,000, two-thirds of the population are Italians, Maltese and Spanish descendants, about 5,000 British people; about 3,000 Moroccans People; the remaining minority population are Indians, Portuguese, and Pakistanis. The entire peninsula is divided into two parts, east and west, and the population is mainly concentrated on the west bank. The population density of Gibraltar is among the highest in the world, with 4,530 people per square kilometer.
Gibraltars are the ethnic and cultural platter of many European immigrants who have moved here for hundreds of years. These people are the descendants of economic immigrants who went to Gibraltar after most of the Spaniards left in 1704. The few Spaniards who stayed there in August 1704 later added more than two hundred Catalans who came to Gibraltar with the fleet of Prince George of Hesse. By 1753 Genoese, Maltese and Portuguese became the majority of the new population. Other ethnic groups include Menorcans (when Menorca was forced to leave home when it was returned to Spain in 1802), Sardinians, Sicilians and other Italians, French, Germans, and British. Immigration from Spain and cross-border marriages with surrounding Spanish towns were an inherent feature of Gibraltar’s history. Until General Franco closed the border with Gibraltar, the connection between Gibraltarians and their Spanish relatives was interrupted. In 1982, the Spanish government reopened the land borders, but other restrictions remained unchanged.
The official languages are English and Spanish. Italian and Portuguese are also common. In addition, some Gibraltarians also use Llanito, which is a kind of English mixed Spanish language. In the conversation, some Gibraltarians usually start with English, but as the conversation deepens, they will mix some Spanish with English.
Gibraltar is a peninsula located on the Mediterranean coast to the south of Spain. It covers an area of only 6.8 square kilometers and has a coastline of 12 kilometers. It guards the navigational route between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. -Strait of Gibraltar.
