Tiger@Sea: With 1 of the memorials moving, the later part of this cache no longer makes sense.
Sadly i have now moved away from Gibraltar so feel the best thing is to archive this cache.
Thanks for all the visits over the couple of years that this has been active.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the co-ordinates listed above. These co-ordinates are for the first waypoint.

The idea of this Multi Cache is to take you around Gibraltar, stopping at some of the lesser known memorial sites that are more often than not missed by the organised tours.

You can walk this tour, although I probably wouldn’t recommend it. Please be aware that some sections of the route do not have pavements so care should be taken if you chose to do so.

There is parking available close to all of the waypoints.

If you have a Gibi Bike card there are bike stations close to the start and end point of the route and near to some of the waypoints. More details can be found at this website.
