“Seriously Scary ..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

For years we thought we had been climbing the med steps but it seems we were not!

The REAL Med Steps are hard to find but seriously scary! So if you were not scared out of your wits you were probably on the King Charles Steps or very brave.

To get to the Med steps you have to walk up the front path of a bungalow and have a "this cannot possibly be the correct route" experience

We chickened out ...

“Hard work!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

It is really hard work down and then back up again. The steps were very steep and without proper footwear, you should not attempt this. Insufficient explanation or warning signs for visitors. Nice view though!

“Nothing else like this, do it at sunrise.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

One of the most unusual walks in Europe and totally free. Not for the feint-hearted though and some of the steps are very steep. You feel like you are in another world as you ascend the Rock of Gibraltar and there is flora and fauna up here that you do not find anywhere else.

“Feeling Fit?”

Worth the climb for the view just mind the monkeys posing for their photos!They are not easy to navigate so not recommended for those that are not sure footed.

“Fancy a work out with fantastic views?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

These 1.5 km up the rock are a pretty good work out. Make sure you ware proper shoes, have plenty of water on you and take it easy.
The early bird chates the worm - the sunrise is amazing
And if you walk over to the cable car station you might get a free ride down :)
