We were lucky enough to visit this venue when there was a Christmas concert being held and were treated to the most amazing music and acoustics in the underground concert hall. The caverns are quite extensive and enjoy a remarkable history which is well documented during your visit. The caverns themselves are beautifully lit in order to enhance the visual experience, overall, excepting any concerns the cavern can be completed in about 30 minutes, I would not miss it...

Just to experience the depth and size of the cave is worth a visit. The sections showing how early man took shelter in the caves was basic but adequate. The section made into a concert hall venue was very impressive.

I didn't know what to expect when our tour stopped at the caves. I thought it was all about the monkeys (Gibraltar is home to the most monkeys in Europe), but the caves were something else.

Amazing cave, bigger than most caverns you visit in the US. Interesting to read what they used the cave for over the years. Now they even hold concerts there.

The part open to tour is not that big so it doesn't take long to tour, but I was okay with that.

Definitely visit during a trip to Gibraltar.

The cave is quite big and very beautiful. I found the rock formations very interesting. Cave is included in the nature reserve ticket so worth a visit as it only takes 15-30 min to see it and appreciate the beauty. Was not busy at all when we went although there was some work carried out inside by the stage part. Outside there is a souvenir shop and a cafe/toilets.

Had a chance for a brief visit during my recent day trip to Gibraltar. At the moment work is being carried out but the cave is still accessible to the public. They are quite interesting and would have liked to spend more time.
