There isn't much to see or do here; it is just the ruins of an old castle to walk around and then once at the top you get good views of the main town and across the sea. Price is included in the nature reserve...More

A small tower that has survived 10 sieges. It's been rebuilt over the years and is a symbol of Gibraltar. You can get tickets for the Upper Rock, including the castle, just outside its gate.

Lovely 30mins spent here enjoying the views. Not good for people afraid of heights as stairs very steep in tower, however great views from canon. Lovely way to finish off a trip to the rock.

This castle is not very big but has been around since the 1300's so it has some interesting history about it. A nice site for a quick visit, but I don't think you would really spend a lot of time here. The entry from the...More
