The history of Gibraltar is encompassed in these tunnels. Each feature is carefully highlighted and explained with static displays and stirring regimental music

Worth a visit to see tunnels dating back to the 1770s. Access to the original tunnels right through to later tunnels created for WW2. Information boards provide a good account of the history and development of the tunnels through time.

We wandered through the tunnels, very interesting. Amazing that they were able to make all the tunnels so long ago.

How these tunnels were dug out by so few men is a true feat of engineering... the meander for miles, and all done to such detail. the views out over La Linea .... the furthest point the siege guns could reach, are breathtaking. And the views down to the marina and over to Spain from the entrance are equally splendid.

The tunnels were very interesting and informative. Posted signs give all the information you need. A guide is not necessary. Warning - going down is very easy! Remember you must climb back up to exit the tunnels.

To this date I still cannot get over how great and historic the Siege tunnels are! You cannot visit them if you are disabled, As they are long and steep! Went with a friend and will certainly be going back The caves are very well set up, And hours of work and labour have been put in to them. The... More
