We back a ticket with several entrances, but to pay 15 euros for entrance here is just a robb-off! They do not accept card payment, the euro-pound exchange is outrageous. They destroyed the cabe with pouring cement every where, and installing disco-like lights. You cannot...More

What an absolutely stunning place! This was part of the bus trip we took to Gibraltar and was a lovely surprise, as we didn’t know anything about it beforehand. The trip up the rock to the caves is not for the faint-hearted because the roads...More

This is a great attraction to visit. We went into the cave a little ways, but the energetic can go pretty far down.

We visited the Caves as part of our tour, and it is a must to see, and inside the lights keep changing colours to make a serene site

St. Michael's Cave was unbelievable! The "wow" factor was in overdrive as I walked through this wonderful site. I highly recommend spending a couple hours exploring this place because its a must see in Gibraltar. The natural beauty (the stalactites (sp) and the stalagmites (sp)...More

Worth visiting if in Gibraltar as there is not a great deal to do. You can go by road or cable to the Rock. The caves were really lovely inside and they hold concerts there, which we would have gone to had there been any...More

A superb attraction and a must-see in Gibraltar. The stalactites and stalagmites are a natural marvel and enhanced by the fantastic lighting throughout the cave. Lots of boards with interesting information about the history of the cave, which makes it an educational visit as well...More

On an excursion of the rock which included this cave we were surprised what great job that was done to preserve and display this cave. The trip up via minibus was great ; however, it is possible to reach this cave via cable car. Monkeys,...More

We walked from the port to the cable car at the bottom. This walk was maybe 25 minutes. From the top of the rock, we then continued to walk to the caves. This option definitely includes lots of walking. You can book a tour... More

Not suitable really for stroller. Maybe you can leave the stroller out side and do a back pack so your little one can experience the lights and cave atmosphere.

Hi guys. We will have one afternoon to visit Gibraltar and want to make the most of it, but are a bit confused. I hope you can help us out! We will be picking up our rental car in Seville at 9 AM, driving to La Linea, cheking into our hotel, and then straight to the rock. Realistically we think that we can be boarding the cable car between 1 and 2 pm. So our plan is: - Ride the cable car to the top, eat a picnic - Walk down to St. Michael's cave and visit - Walk back towards the upper...More

Well, first things first, forget the idea of eating a picnic at the top of the rock. You will have several uninvited visitors that wont be politely asking you to pass them a ham sandwich. Seriously, don't plan on eating up there. Secondly, your plan already does involve back tracking and some steep uphill walking. The taxi tour really is the only sensible option, in my opinion, if you want to see all the attractions in the nature reserve. This would free up time to see other parts...More

We have a day in Gibraltar as part of a cruise. Can I ask a few questions of those who may be able to help. We would like to go on the cable car. How far is this from the cruise terminal? Can we walk? Both fit. We plan to go to the top then visit the botanical gardens. I understand you can then come part way down in the cable car and visit St. Michaels cave. Do we then have to go back to the top to go down, or can we go down from cave? Idea of cost would be helpful also. Thanks.

The cable car takes you to the top of the rock and then you would have to walk to all the attractions and then back up again. If you are fit then around a 2 hr walk to and from the attractions. Alternatively you can join a taxi tour and ask the driver to drop you off at the top of prince edwards road , the botanical gardens are a 5 minute downhill walk. The taxi tour cost per person are more or less the same . Whatever you do , enjoy . Regards

Walking down from the top of the rock (6 Replies)
We are arriving at La Linea at approx 10am and plan to go straight to the cable car and the top of the rock. I had planned to walk back down via St Michaels Cave, the Apes Den and finally the Seige Tunnels. I will be with my mum who is 75 but fit and ok on her feet. Could anyone let me know what state the paths will be in that we are walking on and how steep it is going down. We generally prefer not to do an organised tour as we like to do things in our own time Also after the...More

Hi, Done this exact route a few times now. The walk from St Michaels to the siege tunnels is all on tarmac roads and fairly gentle, some downhill and some uphill. The steepest uphill is the last few hundred meters before the tunnels. When coming down from the siege tunnels, head straight down going past the Moorish Castle. A couple of hundred meters past the castle, you will see some steps on your right. These take you down to Main St. There are a lot of steps so take it easy and you should...More
