Explanation:

[STC00525] Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory, covers a narrow peninsula on the Mediterranean Sea, sharing a mile-long border with the southern tip of Spain. The peninsula, which is most well-known for the Rock of Gibraltar, was handed up to the British in 1713 as part of the Treaty of Utrecht. Over the course of several decades, Britain and Spain engaged in a number of armed battles with one another in an effort to gain control of the territory. The fact that it is situated at the mouth of the Mediterranean has made it an important strategic port for British commerce and naval might. The rocky outcrop, which is home to approximately 30,000 people, is also the closest point between the European mainland and the continent of Africa; on a clear day, you can see all the way to Morocco from here.
