At the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, nestled in the heart of the Spanish province of Cadiz and surrounded by one of the most economically and socially depressed areas of Europe, sits Gibraltar.

Gibraltar is a small city of just 34,000 inhabitants that is considered by Spain to be the last British colony on the European continent. Despite this and despite the territorial conflict between Spain and the United Kingdom over this territory, Gibraltar has become the most prosperous place in Europe and one of the richest enclaves in the world.

And this has made us at VisualPolitik ask ourselves a few questions: What exactly does Gibraltar make money from, how has it managed to become such a prosperous territory, what could Brexit mean for this overseas territory? In this video we tell you all the details.
