Gibraltar's most famous and most visible sight is the 426 m high Rock.

From the viewing terraces at the top of the Rock you can enjoy panoramic views of the Atlantic ocean, the bay of Gibraltar and the Spanish city of Algeciras to the West.

To the East you can see the Mediterranean Sea, the Spanish city La Linea and the Costa del Sol.

Last but not least it is most fascinating to watch the busy Gibraltar Strait with the African continent in the background.

Directions:
The top of the Rock can be reached by cable car, on foot or by car. All options are sort of expensive, even though there are rumours that there is still a footpath up the hill which can be used for free. Please find more information about the cable car in my "Transportation tips".

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
