What a beautiful maintained garden located opposite the Rock Hotel. Lovely views and a home to wildlife. Very educational with opportunities to take the tour. There is also a mini zoo here with monkeys, rabbits and other animals which was a nice little find.

Allow time and energy to visit this lovely venue - there is so much to see and enjoy and I'm sure it is even more beautiful in the spring/summer with everything in full bloom

Stunning and beautiful place. I visited just after heavy rain and it didn't detract from the beauty. Well worth a wonder on an extended visit to Gibraltar. If you are going for the day, do the rock first!
