  • Amazing views. Very slope so be careful. Have fun with the Macau Barbarey Apes at the entrance
  • Visited in March 2016. It was nice to see how the tunnels were built, this place is part of the militaristic history of Gibraltar. I would definitely recommend this place.
  • This is a 'must see' and really quite unique. You get spectacular views across the airport and to Spain from the gun ports. From these c 34 miles of tunnels bored through the Rock itself one can appreciate why GiB was such an unassailable fortress. The tunnels themselves are surprisingly large in cross sectional area, (with the head height of a small house room) - which should mitigate feelings of claustrophobia which some might suffer. I would visit again and make sure I allowed time to see it all properly.
  • The history of the World Wars is understandably dominated by the horrific tales of the attrocities committed, but the Great Siege Tunnels of Gibraltar reminds us of the incredible strength and resilience of those who stood their grounds and repelled invading forces through the application of great ingenuity, industry, and an amazing quality of devotion among brothers in arms to overcome what most would define as insurmountable. The stories of the construction of the tunnels along with the tales of the soliders who defended the Rock of Gibraltar resonate with the legends of Sparta, where a few great men were able to defend liberty against a overwhelming force of a massive fleet. The views of Gibraltar from The Rock ar stunning, the landscape and seascapes inspires awe and peace in the mind. There are many reasons to love The Rock of Gibraltar and the history of the Great Siege Tunnels.
  • Well worth a visit, in fact probably a must cist to get a sense of Gibraltarian history and politics, amazing engineering and the lengths and depths people will go to in war. Great views and if you are not a 'war buff' less boring than it sounds.
