Is Gibraltar worth a visit

The view from the terminus of the cable car, which is 412 m above sea level, is really impressive, and it only takes 6 minutes to get to the top.

The valley station is next to the Alameda Gardens at the south end of Main Street. Once you are at the top you will see three terraces, each with a unique view of the breathtaking surroundings. Below you stretch two continents, two seas and three countries. You can see our tailless Barbary macaques at the top, happy to pose for a photo. Please note, however, that while the monkeys look cute and furry, they are wild animals and must be treated with care and respect.

For the more adventurous among you, there is a pleasant walk from the terminus to the nature reserve. You can reach the stalactite cave St. Michaels Höhle (St Michael´s cave) in only 20 minutes if you go down the valley and it is definitely worth a visit. Other interesting sights include the Great Siege Tunnels and the City Under Siege exhibit, as well as Moorish Castle. Entry to the above-mentioned sights and the 100-ton cannon are included in the entry ticket for the nature reserve, which can be bought separately at the valley station of the cable car or the souvenir shop at the end of the line.

At the end of the cable car is the Top of the Rock Café and the Mons Calpe Suite Restaurant, where you can enjoy the breathtaking views over a delicious meal. If you are thinking of celebrating a wedding or planning a special occasion while visiting the rock, the Mons Calpe Suite can be rented for private events.
