This is wonderful news for all those who want to marry in a place full of culture, but have a low cost and fast legal elopement at the same time.  So what is the City Hall in Gibraltar? Well, since its inauguration in 2015, It has been a prominent visitors attraction in Gibraltar, and The Mario Finlayson National Art Gallery is extremely popular.

The roots of this gallery trace back to the formation of the Calpe Artists Society in 1954, whose members harboured the vision of a dedicated space to showcase the exceptional talents of local artists.

Recently curated with newly acquired works by the Gibraltar Government, the gallery has expanded its collection to include pieces by the late Elio Cruz, enhancing the representation of Gibraltar's artistic heritage. The venue, strategically located on the ground floor of City Hall, was chosen for its historical significance, architectural beauty, and grandeur.

On entering the building follow the red carpet to the ceremony room, which is directly on the right hand side as you walk through the main doors - you cannot miss it.

The City Hall building is as captivating as the art it now houses. Originally built in 1819 as a private mansion by Aaron Cardozo, a prosperous merchant of Jewish Portuguese descent, it has undergone various transformations. From a private residence to a hotel and later the seat of the Gibraltar City Council, the building has evolved while preserving its historical charm.

With ties to Lord Nelson and a rich history of serving the community, City Hall stands as more than just a venue; it is a testament to Gibraltar's cultural tapestry. Today, as the proud home of the Mayor's Parlour and the Mario Finlayson National Art Gallery, City Hall continues to weave together the threads of history and contemporary artistic expression, inviting visitors to explore the rich legacy of Gibraltar's art and heritage.

The gallery room where the ceremonies will take place is lovely and bright and spacious and room for plenty of guests.
