Gibraltar Sightseeing


St Michael's Cave is a spectacular natural grotto with vast stalagmites and stalactites. In the past, it was believed that the cave formed a subterranean link with Africa. As well as being open to visitors, the cave is also used for concerts and performances; the acoustics are superb.

Gibraltar Museum often gets overlooked by visitors eager to visit the tunnels and gawp at the apes, but don't miss this opportunity to learn more about the Rock's swashbuckling history; and be sure to check out the 14th-century Islamic baths.

Key Areas

Not the most obvious sight here, but the Mediterranean steps (an ancient steep pathway at Jew's Gate) is a satisfying hike which traverses the south end of the Rock and offers some stunning views of Morocco across the Straits.

One of the most glorious beaches on the nearby Cadiz coast is tiny Bolonia, backed by dunes and the extraordinary Roman archaeological site of Baelo Claudia with its remains of a theatre, forum, market and basilica columns.

Day Trips

Lovely Jimena de la Frontera looks over the Rock and offers a rewarding day trip with its meandering cobbled streets, historic castle and wonderful nature trails in the adjacent Parque Natural Los Alcornocales.

West of the Rock, picturesque Vejer de la Frontera perches above the coast atop a rocky hill. Winding cobbled streets, a ruined church, some excellent bars and restaurants and a tangible Moorish feel, make this pueblo blanco a great destination for a day out.

Bolonia is a short trip 60km trip due west from the Rock and home to both a blissful white sandy beach as well as some truly impressive Roman ruins; Baelo Claudia, with a paved forum, thermal baths and a good museum.
