We had heard about the numerous excursions available on the rock of Gibraltar but for some reason we had not heard about St. Michael's Cave, this proved to be an unexpected bonus. The entrance does not give away the sheer size of the caves or the stunning views of stalagmites that have taken millions of years to form. The main... More

On a recent cruise stop in Gibraltar we joined a semi private tour group and a stop at St. Michaels Cave was included in the tour. It is a beautiful place to visit and presented in such a dramatic way with the special lighting effects. Well worth a visit!

The beauty of the stalagmites in St Michael's caves can only be described as amazing. The cave is dated to the time of St Mark's gospel 40AD. To see the cave preserved and now used as a musical venue due to its acoustics is mind blowing. The attraction is extremely busy and we weren't there during peak season so be... More

I loved the colors and music. This was an interesting place to visit. The tour guide told us they play concerts inside them because it has great acoustics. Definititely stop over if you go to Gibraltar

This really is a must see, with all the natural stalactites and stalagmites in formations rarely to be seen. Their magnitude and shapes were awesome. This enormous cavern with all these features was enhanced by superb lighting effects. You could not fail to be impressed.

Well worth seeing as part of a longer trip round the rock. The rock formations are amazing and a must see for anyone interested in geology. It can be quite damp inside the cave so may not be suitable for the elderly.

This was one of the most beautiful caves I have ever seen. The addition of the constantly changing lights made it even more dramatic. Absolutely beautiful!

This is a series of caverns with wonderful formations of stalagmites and stalagties and they also hold concerts here. You can venture down inside the cave for quite a long way, but be careful of uneven ground and slippery surfaces. Really awe inspiring natural wonder.

Went as part of an excursion that included a visit to the caves. These are amazing to see. I bet it would be wonderful to attend a music concert there. There were a few areas of the caves that were closed so did not take long to walk around.
