The Pillars of Hercules
One of the attractions of this tour is The Pillars of Hercules. There at the Pillars you will enjoy the views of North Africa Morocco. You will see where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea, this being the only entrance to the Mediterranean. You will be above Europe Point, the end point of Europe.
St Michael's Cave
The next site is St Michael’s Cave. Which sees thousands of visitors a year wandering through its huge caverns with just a few steps and easy access. This amazing, natural phenomenon created by rainwater slowly seeping through the limestone rock, turning into a weak carbonic acid which gradually dissolved the rock millions of years ago.
In 2021 St Michael's Cave introduced a new lighting upgrade for the very best experience of the caves natural beauty, called The Awakening. Enjoy St Michael's cave like never before!
An immersive light and sound installation expressing layer upon layer of history fused with the rock. The ancient cavern lays dormant. The Awakening illuminates sculptures older than time and reawakens their hidden story...
Top of the Rock
Skywalk Glass Viewing Platform & Monkeys
Next we will go to the top of the Rock, and there we will do 2 things: The glass viewing platform called The Skywalk, and visit the monkeys.
The Skywalk is a former military lookout transformed into a state of the art glass platform and walkway giving spectacular views across the Mediterranean. Experience an unbroken 360º panoramic viewpoint around Gibraltar!
From the Skywalk, several minutes walk and we will spend some time with our famous Monkeys at Upper Apes Den (The same height level as the cable) The Barbary Macaque Apes are the only ones to be found within the continent of Europe. They reside at the upper rock nature reserve of Gibraltar.
At present there are over 200 monkeys in 6 packs that roam through the upper rock. Legend has it that in 1942 the population of apes fell to just 7 and the Prime Minister of Great Britain (Sir Winston Churchill) ordered that the population of the apes be immediately replenished because as long as there are Barbary Macaques Apes on the Rock of Gibraltar it will remain under British rule.
Windsor Suspension Bridge
From the top of the Rock we will drive towards the Windsor Suspension Bridge. This spectacular feat of engineering is 71 metres in length, across a 50-metre-deep gorge affording visitors magnificent views of across the strait, bay and city.
Moorish Castle and Old Town of Gibraltar
On the drive down from the Upper rock Nature Reserve we will see the outside of the Moorish Castle, you will be able to see the history and battle scars due to cannon ball shots against the castle between the wars of the Moors and the Spanish. The Moorish Castle is a medieval fortification in Gibraltar which is made up of a number of buildings.
The Moorish Castle stands proudly on the Eastern elevation of the Rock, a proud symbol of the long and colourful history of the Rock of Gibraltar originally built in the 1160CE. It was ransacked by the Spanish between 1309 – 1333. This 'Tower of Homage' was rebuilt in the 14th century by Abu-l-Hasan. You'll be able to look closely to see the cannon dents in the castle walls.
As we exit the nature reserve park we will drive through the old town of Gibraltar.
Finalising the Tour wherever you wish in Gibraltar, if interested in visiting the rest of the town and Main Street, we can supply you with a map and a guideline of what to visit in the pedestrianised areas of town and the best way to get back to your destination.
