Both definitions of the word cool work here. It was a nice cool spot out of the heat and it was neat to learn about the history. There were quite a few little "exhibits" that were under construction when we went, but it was still informative with the other ones that were complete. It is a nice walk. For those... More

The Siege Tunnels are quite a hike, our tour guide told us to go to the end then walk slowly back up, which is what we did. All of the plaques gave us a lot of interesting information about the military and the rock. We even got to see a plane take off from the airport.

Maybe I would not have paid the entrance fee if we had been travelling independently, but included in the taxi tour it was well worth a visit. The length of the tunnel lone is very impressive.

Very interesting history. Had no idea how extensive the tunnels are. Lots more probably hidden away (for good reason) that we know nothing about!

To achieve what those men had, you can't begin to imagine what they had to endure to get the finished result. Full size models, canons, history boards for you to read. Downside was we didn't have enough time to go to the very end of the tunnel or able to read the history boards.

Great piece of engineering, Place is under refurbishment at the moment but still worth seeing. Great views of Spain. Its down hill once you go in but you have to come back up again and its a bit hard going.

Although it's a quite simple attraction it was very informative and you got some history regarding the Rock. A shame that you couldn't go on top of the Notch.

The tunnels were good fun and take a while to trek through, but a fair amount of the exhibits are currently under refurbishment, which was a little disappointing. The exhibits do still all have explanations and information intact so you can follow the tunnels through their history. At the exit to the tunnels is a great vantage point to see... More
