Whilst not being as fit or young as we were {mid fifties], we decided to go up on the cable car and walk down. The steps are steep in places and can be rocky and slippy in others, but some of the views are stunning....More

This walk must surely be on your Gibraltar "bucket list"! As we have officially reached retirement age, we think it's entirely reasonable to walk down the steps! Even catching the cable car at just after 9am, ensures a very warm walk and it's essential to...More

It's a hard walk up the Med steps but well worthwhile. The views are incredible. Take plenty of water and wear sensible footwear. Once your at the summit and walk back down is easy. A must do it you come to Gibraltar.

The walk to the Steps begin at Jews Gate which is near the end of Engineer Road. There is a charge for access to the upper rock reserve, but it will be well worth it if the weather is fine. Take plenty of water and use some... More
