Take the 35 bus up to the Gibralfaro, which is the terminus. Check timetable as bus only runs every 40 to 45 minutes, with a gap between 2.10 and 4.10pm. The walk around the battlements gives superb views of coast, the city and the mountains down the coast and inland. The walk back down is very pleasant with constantly changing perspectives, but hard on the knees if you have problems in that area and slippery stones if wet. Pity neither the staff at the entrance nor at the bar snackery have received any customer service training, a smile or appearing contented obviously being outside their remit. Little signposting or onsite explanations and those only in Spanish. Free pamphlets at entrance in various languages. Take small change as you buy entrance tickets from machines and then present them to one of two staff sitting like parrots in their control booth next to the machines. Surreal!
