If you are interested in history, Gibraltar is a must see stop, especially if your interest lies in military decisions. Tunnels are interesting from both an engineering and military aspect. Easy to walk around and view various angles from gun ports.

An unforgettable experience to go inside the tunnels and look out over the rock. There are good guides and information and the staff at the gate were really friendly and informative.

It was a bit of a hike up from the town, but seeing the tunnels was worth it. The size of the chambers with several cannons in was eye opening, especially given the tools they had at the time.

If your time is limited, for sure, taxi up. That way you are not at the mercy of a tour schedule.
