This is the second time i have seen and experience being at the top of the rock, a serious piece of history. Views on the day we went was spectacular. So much to do and see. Take a tour or a bus to top.. i saw lots of people thinking they can climb up and/or back and it gets HOT.

Gibraltar is a great place to visit, if only for the amount of history that is held within this very small tract of land (3 miles long, and 3/4 mile wide). Our naval history associated with Gibraltar is phenomenal, and a journey through the 30 miles of different tunnels within the rock is like a passage in time. The beaches... More

Always worth a visit to the top of the rock by cable car. At the top you have fantastic panoramic views of Gibraltar plus the Spanish coastline towards Soto Grande and beyond on a clear day. But be aware of the apes if you have bags as they will be into them or try and snatch them!

We took the cable car to the top. The views are exceptional and the monkeys are very cute, just don't get too close as they can be aggressive.

We live in Spain. So as visitors arrive at our house, we usually tend to end up in Gib. We don't mind we enjoy each trip. We have always enjoyed the commentary given by the drivers on the trip up the rock. Some are wonderful, funny and knowledgeable and even throw in little extra bits on the way. Unfortunately on...

We visited Gibraltar on a guided tour from Torremelinos. The tour guide took us around the rock and explained everything to us which was really handy, I recommend doing that. The monkeys are brilliant, they come right up to you, and even climbed on a few people but they never hurt anybody, they are harmless as long as you do... More

I have read about it, seen pictures of it, television shows and movies about it. To walk it and experience it is great. I can only imagine the hardships that 1,000's of people experienced over the history of Gibraltar.
