This is the best place to go in Gibraltar. Firstly you are pretty much at the top here so have great views and secondly you can explore the tunnels and see how the big gun worked that is placed here.
It's nice to walk up from the town to get here and takes less than 1 hour.

One of the many sites included in your entry ticket for the Gibraltar Nature Reserve and the first you come across while walking the Mediterranean steps. From O'Hara's Battery you get some wonderful views of Gibraltar with some well described military history. Not sure its worth the £5 if you don't have the Reserve ticket but its a great place to catch your breath!

On a Friday morning in December, we wanted to visit the highest point on the rock. Having read the reviews that said the battery was closed for no reason when they arrived, we asked if it is open at the cable station and at the top coffee shop where we purchased the park visit tickets, and the answers were yes in both places.
Walking up from the junction of the St. Michaels road was hard. When we arrived after about 20 minutes at around 10:30, the gates were locked (padlock) with nobody around! No signs of any kind that explains why it was closed, At the minimum, why there was no sign at the road junction that said it is closed so people would not walk up???
After returning to USA, I tried to find out which organisation is operating this attraction to complain. It seems to be the GIBRALTAR TOURIST BOARD (Under Gib. Heritage Trust?). Here I am addressing to the President of the Tourist Board: CLEAN UP YOUR ACT! Closing an attraction is fine, but at least inform the offices concerned and put up some signs to warn the people. You are insulting your guests who come to see your territory!!!
I am hoping an official of Gibraltar will respond to this review.

This is the highest point on the rock, with outstanding panoramic views and some interesting military artefacts. Best accessed on foot via the Jews Gate entrance to the rock, with a well-deserved refreshment break at St Michael's cafe. If accessing the rock by cable car, be prepared for a further steep up-hill trek. There is no supplementary charge to visit this attraction, but a full attraction ticket would be worthwhile if visiting on foot as it would be a shame to walk past but not visit the St Michael's Cave complex. Expect to spend 20-30 minutes at this attraction.

Amazing Display and views but in great need of a rub down and fresh coat of paint. Not a big job, could be done in a couple of days.

With legs burning from exertion, and a healthy heart rate we reached the summit. The views across the straits to Africa are amazing. But you can't help but marvel at how they managed to get the machinery guns and ammunition up there.
It is a fantastic exhibit with videos explaining how it all works. Well worth the effort to get up there. Oh and it's as equally tough on the way back down!!

This is an amzing attraction and has been well preserved you can go up on the gun turret and also visit the under ground where the engineering and the electrical works are. Its a steep climb to get here but the views are wll worth it.

lovely views up here but is quite uphill and tiring to get here, admission charge of £3.00 wasn't charged as there was no one around other than a few other visitors, 2 very big guns but you can only get around the big one. the views over Gibraltar are excellent on a clear day

Walked all the way up there and it was closed ! Why can`t they put a sign up saying it is not open either at the St Micheal's cave attraction or at the junction with St Micheal's road ? A long walk for nothing ! Still it was a nice view from the top of the Mediterranean steps !
