YAWNING! What a colossal waste of precious time. The cost of entrance to this, the Ape's Den and St. Michael's Cave is very steep for what is displayed. Too expensive and not well presented. Save your money! Great views from the top on a clear day and the apes are entertaining. That's about it!

Well presented display as you tour around the tunnels and exhibition. Good audio points in each of the areas enhances your understanding.

When you've walked all the way down, you then have to walk all the way back up again. Information boards are contradictory (e.g. one says they don't know why the windows were created and another says they were there for ventilation).

Once you get inside theres not a lot except tunnels and cannons ,quite a steep climb back if you walk to the end.Well worth seeing as its a feat of engineering ,all done by hand.

I lived in Gibraltar for 18 months and never tired of coming here. Fascinating history and great views. If you are coming here with small children it is easier to explore if the child is in a baby backpack as its tough going pushing a pushchair up quite a steep incline over rough stone. Avoid coming here if there has... More

Very interesting but we did it with the rock tour and probably would not have paid separately to go in some great views and info on what it was like.

Amazing that these tunnels have been made without any machines. Great history lesson to walk through the tunnels.
