    No, you are wrong.
    Gibraltar is NOT the southernmost point of Europe. Tarifa is an absolutely different place of the same province, and yes, is the southermost point.
    Gibraltar belongs to England because the french Bourbons (i.e. the current king of Spain) sold it to the English just to become the rulers of Spain after both the english and the french defeated Austrian empire during the Spanish sucession war.
    You know...OK, you can be the rulers of Spain, but we want Gibraltar. (They also got Menorca and some Caribbean islands)
    The french said "Ok, nevermind".
    Because of Gibraltar now the Spanish ruler is king Juan Carlos I BOURBON.
