1 Bedroom Apartment for Rent, Town, Gibraltar

A well-presented 1-Bedroom 1-Bathroom in Irish Town. The property offers a large open-plan kitchen/living room. It comes furnished, as well as a fully equipped kitchen. You also get to enjoy a communal roof terrace, offering great views of The Rock and Town. Air Conditioning/Heating Irish Town is at the commercial heart of the city of Gibraltar. In the period when Gibraltar was Spanish, the street was called the Calle de Santa Ana. It was also the venue for a convent for nuns, founded in 1587. When Gibraltar was taken from Spain by an Anglo-Dutch force in 1704, The Convent of Santa Clara was abandoned by the nuns and the convent of La Merced was taken over by the Royal Navy as a storehouse and apartments for the victualling clerks. In due course, the street became known as Irish Town. The original Irish residents were probably Irish women immigrants who came to Gibraltar in late 1727 and early 1728. They were sent out to provide female company for the troops. The street is currently a location for a synagogue, a former meat market, former warehouses and a merchant house - an example of this can be seen in Sacarello’s coffee shop. The ground floor was a merchant’s shop and the first floor was a store, accessed from the street by a winch on the exterior of the building. Probably the most significant public building on Irish Town is the former Victorian police station of 1864 and was the headquarters of the Royal Gibraltar Police until 1984. The bustling commercial Irish Town, in the early 20th century, included tobacco factories, coffee roasting works, and many shipping offices. The character of the street changed in the latter 20th century when the street was pedestrianised. In addition to its traditional activities and its many shops, the street embraced a new leisure and gastronomic character with its numerous shops, bars and restaurants.

Town Area Info
TOWN AREA
Town Area is home to most of Gibraltar’s retail establishments. Main Street, running through the pedestrianised old town from Casemates Square all the way up to Southport Gates, almost covers the entire length of the city, its buildings exhibiting a blend of Andalusian, Moorish, Portuguese, Genoese, and British architecture. Alongside the more traditional shops, mostly lined on the ground floor, visitors will recognise familiar high street brands and chains, intertwined with souvenir and handicraft shops. The upper floors generally provide residential accommodation or office space for local businesses. Dating back to the 18th Century, merchants, traders and shopkeepers established their businesses in Gibraltar, many of which are still run by the direct descendants of the families that instituted them. Gibraltar’s geographic location was nothing short of perfect for merchants back then to port and trade their goods. Casemates Square, as with much of Gibraltar, is open to and represented by many different ethnic peoples. Situated right at the bottom of Main Street, it has a wide range of restaurants, cafes and bars, in which you can order a drink, get comfy, and “people watch” until your heart’s content. Casemates, is the largest of the two main squares located in the city centre of Gibraltar, and is used for special events throughout the year, hosting various shows, festivals and nightlife.
