SEPAC stamps are special stamps issued by Small European Postal Administrations and are highly collectible amongst philatelists, having been issued for over fifteen years. Each year a new theme is assigned by SEPAC, participating countries issue stamps reflecting their own interpretation of the theme. For 2024 the theme is 'Main Tourist Attractions' and our issue features six stamps and a miniature sheet, highlighting some of Gibraltar’s main tourist destinations.

Commonwealth Park: Established in 2014, Commonwealth Park stands as a tranquil oasis amidst the urban landscape of Gibraltar. This area served as the site for the 1995 International Island Games, after which it was transformed into a verdant public space. Its creation symbolises Gibraltar’s ties to the Commonwealth and serves as a testament to the city’s commitment to green initiatives and community recreation. 

Barbary Macaques: The Barbary Macaques, also known colloquially as the Barbary apes, have roamed the Rock for centuries, with their presence documented as far back as the 17th century. Believed to have been introduced by the Moors or possibly even earlier inhabitants, these wild primates hold a significant place in Gibraltar’s folklore and cultural heritage. Protected by law, they are a living link to the Rock’s past and a cherished emblem of its enduring resilience. 

The Moorish Castle: Overlooking the old town, the Moorish Castle is a testament to Gibraltar’s strategic significance throughout the ages. Originally constructed by the Moors during their occupation of the Iberian Peninsula in the 8th century, the castle served as a military stronghold and residence for successive rulers. Its imposing walls and commanding position offer a tangible link to Gibraltar’s tumultuous history of conquest and reconquest, embodying the resilience of its people over centuries of conflict and change. 

Gibraltar Dolphin Watching: The waters surrounding Gibraltar have long been home to diverse marine life, including various species of dolphins. The Strait of Gibraltar serves as a crucial migratory route for these majestic creatures, drawn by the rich abundance of fish and favourable currents. While modern dolphin-watching tours offer visitors the chance to witness these marine marvels up close, they also reflect Gibraltar’s longstanding relationship with the sea and its commitment to sustainable tourism practices. 

Catalan Bay Beach: Catalan Bay, originally known as La Caleta, has been a focal point of Gibraltar’s coastal life for centuries. Historically a fishing village inhabited by Genoese and Catalonian fishermen, its sheltered bay provided a safe haven for maritime activities. Today, its sandy shores and colourful waterfront retain echoes of its maritime past, offering visitors a glimpse into Gibraltar’s seafaring traditions andmulticultural heritage. 

The Skywalk: Offering sweeping vistas over the Strait of Gibraltar and beyond, the Skywalk provides a modern perspective on the Rock’s ancient landscape. Built in 2018, this architectural marvel offers visitors a bird’s-eye view of the Rock’s rugged cliffs and historic landmarks. Its construction reflects Gibraltar’s ongoing evolution as a modern, forward-thinking community while also celebrating its enduring natural beauty and cultural heritage.
