Its like you are in another world away from the hustle of Main Street so quiet. Not for anyone who is scared of heights but amazing views and you do need to be steady on your feet and fairly fit.

Found the entrance to these steps by o'haras battery whilst having a wonder around so thought I'd give them a go. They pretty much lead from the top of the rock to the bottom on the east/south side and offer good views in places. They can be quite steep in places and if you have a fear of heights they... More

Today, on my way to the Med Steps, on Engineer Road more precisely, I met the little fellow from the pictures. It's a viper and is venomous. It doesn't attack people if is not bothered by them. But if you step on it, it will bite you as a way of defense. As you can see in the pictures, its... More

The most challenging walk I've ever done on the rock, it was challenging but the beauty of a place that was once a war zone, incredible and I cannot describe how much I love this place. Not for the unfit mind you and I am unfit.. I make a point of doing it as often as possible when I visit... More

Really a must see in Gibraltar. But can be tough in the summer heat. I recommend having a water bottle near

Walked from a cruise ship at the port up to Jews Gate first, which was a bit of a feat in itself in the midday August heat. Then I walked up these steps which take you around the Rock, sometimes descending to then ascend, and give excellent views. I encountered a family who had taken no water and the youngest... More

Really enjoyed this walk, we went from top to Jews Point. Great walk and lovely views. Bring plenty of water as you will need it, as well as some snacks to have at the caves. Lots of WW2 fortifications which sadly you cannot enter (tunnels) but lots of huts to take your selfies in. Bring your selfie stick!

Get some decent off road running shoes a daysack with water and get sweating like never before. ..really good phys session that will give a deep burn in the quads duevto the steep incline of the steps coupled with the uphill run just to get to the start

After spending several hours on the Rock my friend and I decided to go down The Mediterranean Steps to leave the Rock. Important - if you suffer from vertigo, or have any walking disability then this is not for you. The steps are steep, narrow, sometimes a little uneven, but there is some fencing ad plenty of roped areas to... More
