What is worth buying?
Rolex watches, parfume, electronics and clothes are what many people are looking for in Main Street, Gibraltar - but the major trade is still tobacco and alcohol.
Gibraltar is well known for cheaper cigarettes, but the laws are generally not. It is an offence in Gibraltar to be in possesion of more than ten cartons of cigarettes (2000 cigarettes) - also when importing these back to Spain, your free allowance is only one carton (200 cigarettes) per adult.
