A slice of medieval Gibraltar history. Nothing much to see inside but a good view of the town below and harbour area. However, further up the hill gives you an even better view. It is quite a plain structure and doesn’t have the detail of...More

You get twenty minutes but that’s more than enough. The views from it over the runway and on into Spain are spectacular.

An old fortification that, in typical Gibraltar style is not really displayed to the best effect. Only really possibly to visit main tower which has little of interest. Nice views from the roof.

It is possible to visit this site on your way or way back from the WWII caves. It is interesting to see the site as has been restored.

It is non the less a very impressive siege tower. Well worth a look around if you enjoy these kind of things as I do. Some good information provided on the information boards scattered around.

Can be done as part of the price of the Rock Nature Reserve or as a stand alone attraction. It's well worth the climb to the top of the tower for the views, plus the history of the rooms on the way up.
