The old building has many rooms and floors to observe, only a few accessible to tourists. Narrow metal stairs take you through the buildings center and all the way to the roof where the view is wonderful. I usually am not afraid of heights but...More

A fun, old moorish castle and one of the oldest structures on The Rock. There are detailed information boards inside The Tower of Homage (really the only thing left standing) and you must go up to the terrace and walk the walls to get various...More

Don't need to spend much time here and if not on a tour I wouldn't recommend to stop. Just another vantage point for some great shots.

This is a nice old castle with a good view of the airport but if you are short on time this could easily be skipped as it is not as amazing as other things. It takes about 15 minutes or less to do.

It is nice on the outside, but the inside is unassuming and there is not too much signage. It is cool for history buffs, but it could also be a disappointment. Do the tunnels instead.

The Moorish Castle is one of the oldest structures on Gibraltar dating back to the 12th century. Not much is left of the castle complex except for the tower which still has some well preserved rooms inside (some of the vaulted ceilings are beautiful). There...More

Go back in time and imagine what it would have been like during the Great Siege. Very steep hill to walk up to the castle. A bus takes you part of the way

Nicely rebuild and housing a small museum and a very nice interior garden. From the top of the tower you will have a great view on the airport, which is also the only road to enter the city. Unique in the world: when a plane...More
