The tunnels offer extraordinary sights northward, towards La Linea. If you lucky on time, you'll see also a plane landing or taking off at the strange Gibraltar airport, where car road and plane tarmac cross each other. The huge tunnels, built in the 18'th century,...More

Wondering through the tunnels with the wax people in costume, speakers playing noises of the time, it was amazing to learn the history and how vast the network is.

To a history buff, Gibraltar is out there! These tunnels, chiseled out by hand hundreds of years ago! Cannons hauled by hand & block and tackle......tough guys for tough times. Take the time to explore here. Audio is available in many languages

The history behind the building of these tunnels is quite impressive as it was done by hand and is several kilometres long. There are good viewing spots throughout.
