one of gibraltars oldest building contructed by the moors who had dominated spain for over 7 hundred years gib was taken when word got around that the fortress had very defence it was then taken by the mayor of tarifa in the name of the duke of medina sidonia a very important spanish mitary person the castle used to hold her majesty's prison until about 8 month ago and is being totally refurbished for the tourist industry you can if you wish to visit tyhe top of the casle but for the moment nothing else but still a very good place to visit.from the top you can see almost the whole of the rock from one place , no wonder this is why it wqas built in that location by the moors

Great views from the castle and was a welcome break from the athletic stride down the rock.Again was busy and space was tight in places but worth a visit.

Great historical site which includes great views of Gibraltar and its Bay.

Not for those with mobility issues as the site requires climbing some very narrow steps.

Advice: Don't feed the apes that hang around the entrance waiting for unsuspecting tourists!

Well worth the visit with a very interesting history well told by the displays inside. Superb views of the town, docks, airport etc.
Also handy for the Siege tunnels.
