This is an amazing feat of engineering, constructed during and following the three year Great Siege of Gibraltar. The story of the tunnels and the siege is told through the displays and information points. If your on gibraltar this is a must visit. Fantastic experience hence a score of five.

We took the taxi tour up the Rock and got off the taxi at this attraction, which is the last stop on the tour.

As part of our Rock Tour by taxi it was not to be missed. You enter through an interesting portal with a short history exhibition. all through the walk(which is down hill) there are the different gun emplacements with explanations and tableaus of the events. If you walk right to the bottom be prepared to walk back.

This was our last stop on the minibus tour of the Rock. The tunnels are wide, but in some places taller people have to watch out for their heads. The tunnel slopes downhill, and mindful of the fact that we had to walk back up again, we only went as far as the second gun position. It was interesting to... More

Spectacular works and views. And an excellent, easily assimilated lesson in the Great Siege and subsequent wars. Enjoyed every minute. Practically, was easy to negotiate, wander through at one;s own pace, plenty of useful information in the displays.
