Private Half-Day Tour to Gibraltar from Marbella...

Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

The views from the top of the tower are great; we were there on a clear day, though it was quite windy. The interior is mostly stairs and a few empty rooms and small windows. There is a mini-pond near the entrance - a cute little garden. You can see much of Gibraltar well. Because the cable cars were closed due to high winds, we took a tour which included this stop. White it may not be an attraction you "must" attend, it was fun to visit the historic place that you can see on the Rock from down below, and great for some pictures.

Nice views, but that's it. It's not well kept and there isn't really nothing "interesting" to see. It is woth a visit if it's included in the general ticket, but not if you have to pay for it separately.

If you are willing to walk up the stairs there are some not views of Gibraltar. The steps are narrow and not easy to navigate. If you have trouble walking this is not a place to visit. Nice if you like to see what a Moorish castle is like. It has not been redone and is pretty much open to the elements. We did not feel it was anything special.

The Castle complex is ancient so worth a nod to history but we walked up and it was quite a walk. Would think it would be best as part of a tour. certainly not sorry we visited.
