Watch out for the monkeys

Travel by cable car to this attraction. Be careful of the monkeys, take NO food with you. Cafe at the top of the rock is reasonable value.

..not just around the top of the cable car, but dotted over the upper Rock. Apparently there are six troops, with a total of around 240 monkeys. Lots of opportunity for walks, as long as you are reasonably fit, since the roads and paths are often quite steep. If you don't fancy long climbs, then take the cable car to... More

You have to visit here while in Gibraltar. You get great views of Gibraltar Morocco and Spain. Come up early.

Whilst in Gibraltar we had just one day to explore and so we headed for the 'Gibraltar Upper Rock Nature Reserve' in our rental car (The Cable Car was closed due to high winds). The entrance fee was €49.00 (Comprised of 2 Adults at €15 each, 2 Children at €8 each and €3 for the car). Considering all the attractions... More

Well worth it but don't pay the £10 as you will not not be able to see all of it. Unless you start early.

The views from the top of the rock are superb, but having visited about 10 years previously it seemed that nothing much had altered. There is bits of rubbish around the rock and whilst appreciating it could be carried by the wind, we werent sure why a little more care isnt taken to make the very most of the Islands... More

Went here and most people walk straight past as it is badly signed. There is no obvious entry point encouraging you in, just the words "City under Siege" in grey, like the stone, very high up on a wall. I nearly missed the best bit - a 20 min video in an obscure building, because there was no sign telling... More

This is a must in Gibraltar. I certainly recommend walking, as you get spectacular views on the way as well, not only at the top. And macaques are the very funny :)
