not a lot to see but great views

Once inside the complex there are a few information boards. Climb to the top though for some great views across Gibraltar and Spain.

Not much to do in here. Steep steps to climb and the view is no better than from the rock. It would be a nice place to cool down in on a very hot day

The castle is not large and does not take long to tour, but it is very interesting to soak in the history of Gibraltar. Worth a visit

It is worth walking up the steps to the top of the tower as the views are great. Not much time is needed to get about the tower but still worth a little visit. The place could do with having a bit more information available to tourists about it's history.

It's A-MUST for Top 10 Attractions of THE ROCK! Make sure that you have energy enough to climb up as the view from the top of Moorish Castle worths all calories burnt ;) The staff at ticket booth is very helpful and super nice - they made this stop more memorable indeed!

The castle looks quite impressive from the outside and below especially the Tower of Homage and the Gate House. There are many stairs and your final destination on the top offers beautiful views. We liked the area of 18th century Queen Charlotte's Battery with its guns and areas to view the surroundings below. The Tower is quite impressive. Visiting the... More

The Moorish castle looks more impressive from below than close up. The information boards are interesting and well done (as all of the Gibraltar tourist attractions are) and if you're in the area then go but otherwise there are lots of better things to see, in particular if you walk higher up the hill the World War II tunnels are...

Walked up the many stairways and steps to get here , and not easy to get to except from the upper Rock. When you get in there are good views down into Gibraltar town , but not much else. You can go in the tower up the spiraling rickety staircase to the top for better views , but there is... More

Not really much to it, other than a square building with an internal staircase leading up to a rooftop terrace. Yes, you can appreciate the construction and the violence that it must have endured during its lifetime, but that's about it, really. Be very careful on the internal metal staircases - my wife tripped and fell going up, as there... More
