Towering over what was once the edge of the antique Greco-Roman civilization, The Rock of Gibraltar offers panoramic views as well as some of the highlights of any tour of Gibraltar. Rising 426 m (1,398 ft) above sea level, this incredibly important strategic rock bears traces left by its many conquerors. Follow the loop trail in either direction and discover its most important sites, including a Moorish castle, a small museum dedicated to the French and Spanish siege, a natural cave turned into an auditorium, and a network of underground tunnels. Reasonably fit nature lovers should take the Mediterranean steps. The rock is home to a population of Barbary macaques that can behave quite mischievously, especially if you forget that these are wild animals.

Beautiful place. Views all over Spain, Gibraltar and into Africa. There is a nice little cafe at the top. Monkeys are an amazing sight. A must see if you are in or near Gibraltar
Absolutely beautiful! A great day-trip during my visit to Spain. The culture difference crossing the boarder was amazing to see (being from Canada, this was a very novel experience for me). Getting to see the macaques and the coastline of Africa from the top of the Rock of Gibraltar was an amazing experience!
