This was part of our private tour and was very interesting to hear about the history. Fascinating to hear everything.

I visited the Moorish Castle on a recent visit to Gibraltar. Its a lovely place to visit.The castle is a lovely old building with character. One of my many favorite Gibraltar attractions.

i enjoyed the view over both Gibraltar,the airstrip and Spain. Its a great place to photograph and i love history so for me its perfect. I would recommend a visit to the Moorish Castle. This activity is not an all day but a round 30 mins to 1 hour is enough time to enjoy this attraction.

The entry ticket is £12 pp which is very expensive but we had it included on our nature reserve ticket. Good views all round but there is not much to this castle other than going up the steep steps to the roof for the higher views. There is a small display half way up with a bit of interesting history.

Our guide, John Lopez with Gibraltar Rock Tours, stopped here for us to get a look at the Moorish Castle. The castle itself wasn’t overly impressive, but it does give some insight into the fascinating history of Gibraltar and the building itself. This is somewhat explained in signage posted around the complex. The inside stairway to the top is steep and narrow but it's worth the climb to see the view and, if your timing is right, to watch a plane land or take off at the nearby airport. The castle is not very big and everything can be seen rather quickly.

Rather a hurried visit as close to closing time - our driver dropped us off here & it was definitely worth the climb to the top for the views - would like to spend more time to understand the full history of the place - so would recommend

The original fortifications and worth a vist for the views from the ramparts if nothing else. If you have time you should make the effort

Definitely worth taking the time to visit on your descent from th rock. Shady garden area, great views from the top.

Relatively small area inside with access to the top of the Moorish Castle and down some steps to a smaller area with facts that recommend you visit the Gibraltar museum. It almost felt like it was recommending that we visit the museum instead of the castle! However, I still enjoyed my visit. I recommend visiting this either with the nature reserve cable car ticket or with a taxi tour

I wish this castle was exactly as it was in its early years as you can see how beautiful and luxurious it would have been inside. The gardens outside are lovely, with a well stocked pond, the walkway is very impressive. Unfortunately it has probably been ransacked down the years by layer upon layer of invading forces, WWII, etc, so that the only visible elements are the structure itself. I hope that it can be fully restored some day.

A small, very old castle you visit on your way down the rock. Quaint but not a lot to see - probably not worth visiting unless you are passing and already have an all attractions ticket
