San Roque

The city of San Roque so-called City of Gibraltar in Exile.

Takes its name from the Rock due to the series of events that occurred in 1704 when the isthmus was taken by the English and the original inhabitants refused the British offer to stay in the colony.

The town was founded on a small hill with a chapel dedicated to Saint Roque where Gibraltarians used to go to pray for protection from the plague.

San Roque city grew gradually during the sieges on the Rock, and its parish church was built on the same site as the chapel in 1735.
