Well worth a visit to see this cavern formed over millions of years by dripping water. The constantly changing lighting makes it look stunning. Best way to visit is possibly on a taxi tour but they may try and rush you through

They were setting up for a concert, and colored lights flash on the stalactites every second, so it makes it pretty and slightly eerie. As I'd take a picture, the color would change and I'd have a problem actually capturing the intricate stalactites niceties, but it was very interesting and pretty nice looking.

Very nice set of caves, interesting to hear a group of singers whilst we were in there. They were also setting up for a concert in the evening. Not a place for the less abled to visit as there are quite a few steps although there is a lift into the first cave so you can get some experience of... More

Enormous caverns to marvel about as you walk through. Lighted with colored spotlights to enhance what would otherwise be dark, dreary and gray. Great acoustics in the theater segment. The stories of the formation and its uses through the years make it a nice stop on the tour. The ride up and back in a tour bus is a thrill... More

Well worth the hike, being quite a jaw-dropping sight to behold. It'll have you wondering if you are witnessing the handiwork of some higher intelligence, and will certainly question your own significance on the planet.

St Michael's caves are one of the must see attractions on the Rock. It would be amazing to see a concert there but the main chamber with the seating is impressive in its self. The rocks are well lit adding to the atmosphere and the walk around is taxing at times but worth the effort.

This was beautiful and stunning. A must see if you are visiting the apes as it's on the way. The detail inside the cave was incredible. My boyfriend is an engineer and this structuring interested him so much. We were given this access as part of the tor we booked and it was a great extra

This is one enormous cave with exceptional lighting. Was part of our tour and definitely the highlight. Takes quite a while to walk through and see everything. There is stadium seating for the many concerts which take place there. Can only imagine how impressive a concert would be in that atmosphere. Would definitely recommend visiting.

A must if you visit Gibraltar. A bit of a drive to get to (for us anyhow as we were on a tour) but certainly worth the effort. The caves are enormous and the lighting and sound add to the atmosphere. Concerts are staged in side at times during the year.
