WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN GIBRALTAR
St. Michael's Cave
This beautiful natural grotto was prepared as a hospital during WWII; today it is a unique auditorium. There is also a lower segment that provides the most adventurous visitor with an experience never to be forgotten, however, these tours need to be pre-arranged.
One of Gibraltar's most important tourist attractions, the Barbary Macaques are actually tailless monkeys. We recommend that you do not carry any visible signs of food or touch these animals as they may bite. There is a maximum fine of £4,000 for feeding the monkeys.
The Great Siege Tunnels
The Great Siege Tunnels are an impressive defence system devised by military engineers. Excavated during the Great Siege of 1779-83, these tunnels were hewn into the rock with the aid of the simplest of tools and gunpowder.
World War II Tunnels - Rock and Fortress
During WWII an attack on Gibraltar was imminent. The answer was to construct a massive network of tunnels in order to build a fortress inside a fortress.
9.2" Gun, O'Hara's Battery - Rock and Fortress
Located at the highest point point of the Rock, O'Hara's Battery houses a 9.2" gun with original WWII material on display and a film from 1947 is also on show.
Military Heritage Centre
A fascinating array of artefacts of military history housed in Princess Caroline's Battery.
Gibraltar, a City Under Siege Exhibition
One of the first buildings ever constructed by the British in Gibraltar. Undoubtedly, the most important aspect of the building is the graffiti that can be seen on the walls, the earliest of which dates back to 1726.
The fortifications on and around the site of the Moorish Castle were first built in 1160. The Tower of Homage, its main features, dates primarily from about 1333 Ad when Abu'l Hussan recaptured Gibraltar from the Spanish.
