World War II Tunnels, Gibraltar

2.7
#6 of 15 in Historic Sites in Gibraltar
Take a tour through the labyrinth of World War II Tunnels, dug for a British garrison intended to defend Gibraltar from an anticipated German attack that never happened. Amazingly, this historic rock, solid from the outside, is practically an underground city hollowed out by a network of nearly 52 km (32 mi) of tunnels. They were prepared to accommodate the entire garrison of 16,000 soldiers for 16 months. See the recreated hospital--one of the parts of the tunnels actually put to use during the war.

  • You enter with guides only but the guides are tied to the arrival of buses. So good luck if you’re tight on schedule.
