Mediterranean Steps, Gibraltar

(480+ reviews on the web)
Hiking Trail Historic Walking Area
Explore the plant and animal life of the Rock of Gibraltar while enjoying scenic vistas by climbing Mediterranean Steps, the area's hidden gem. This rough, untouristed path meanders along the eastern face of the rock, through a natural reserve and past several natural caves and some World War II fortifications. The British constructed the steps as part of the army communication system--you can still see two 19th-century coastal defense guns along the way. The relatively challenging climb requires a reasonable level of fitness and isn't suitable for those with a fear of heights. Work out when and for how long to visit Mediterranean Steps and other Gibraltar attractions using our handy Gibraltar trip builder.
