The Alameda gardens is that oasis any city needs to have, in particular Gibraltar that looks more like a casemate than a town. The garden has an interesting collection of flowers, trees and cacti. I visited Alameda in the morning before the cable car to the Rock of Gibraltar opens (9:30). Just love it.

quiet spot gardens would be nice to visit in the spring not in December, but still enjoyable and near the cable car, the walk through the park can be quite steep, but plenty of seating where you can just sit and relax

Walked through this garden so quiet & peaceful, really beautiful well worth a look. Watched a wedding taking place. There are two parts of the garden you can marry in, one you pay for the other you don't, but either is beautiful.

It was quiet, away from the regular tourist/shopper beaten track. It had some lovely plants, the gardens were arranged well. It was in need of a tidy up in some places, and the paths weren't as spotless as I'd expected around mid-morning. Saying that, it's well worth a visit - if only to get away from the madding crowd!

The botanical gardens are nice, they are close to where the cable car station is and best of all are free to enjoy

Very nicely laid out well maintained gardens with superb views of the Western side of Gibraltar. Several interesting statues and interesting information boards. And free to go in.

Cleverly designed to give the impression of a large garden in what is quite a small area, and with a wonderful selection of plants and local wildlife.

Gibralta was the first port of call for my sister and I on our recent Cunard Cruise. We spent a few hours walking around this Kew inspired garden. Some areas were nicely tended, whilst others needed attention but it didn't spoil our enjoyiment as all gardens are work in progress. It's free entry and about a 30mins walk from the... More

You will be amazed by the tranquility amongst the hustle and bustle of the Rock in general. You may be surprised by what you spot hiding there !
