I have been to few caves like this before around the world, so I went in and out in 5 minutes. If you haven't seen anything like this before you would be impressed.

A wonderful and spectacular setting, I would expect this setting would be fantastic for a musical event.

As good as I remember them as a child - if you book them in advance you can go to lower caves, cafe at the top fairly grim and nowhere else to get a drink / snack

This cave is amazing you must visit. The way it is lit inside shows it off perfectly. They hold concerts here and the acoustics are amazing.

This is a nice cave with intriguing stalactites and stalagmites however it's also interesting the way it has been set up for concerts due to the acoustics. Perhaps a little overdone with the changing colour display.

We visited the caves as part of the Rock Tour and they were, in fact, brill.

Huge, majestic cave within the Rock of Gibraltar. Good accessibility with handrails etc. stalactites are magnificent. One had been sliced through and was beautiful inside. They have classical concerts here which would be well worth a visit if one coincides with your stay in Gibraltar. Highly recommended
