The changing of the guard which takes place outside the Convent is one of the military ceremonies which can be seen happening regularly in Gibraltar. It takes place from 6 to 8 times a year throughout the year, and is truly a spectacle to behold as it displays its emanating military history alongside the British culture. Further information can be obtained from the Gibraltar Information Centre. The guard is normally provided by the Gibraltar Regiment, part of the British Army, however sometimes you may see other visiting soldiers on duty.
