A fun, old moorish castle and one of the oldest structures on The Rock. There are detailed information boards inside The Tower of Homage (really the only thing left standing) and you must go up to the terrace and walk the walls to get various...More

Don't need to spend much time here and if not on a tour I wouldn't recommend to stop. Just another vantage point for some great shots.

This is a nice old castle with a good view of the airport but if you are short on time this could easily be skipped as it is not as amazing as other things. It takes about 15 minutes or less to do.

Go back in time and imagine what it would have been like during the Great Siege. Very steep hill to walk up to the castle. A bus takes you part of the way

Nicely rebuild and housing a small museum and a very nice interior garden. From the top of the tower you will have a great view on the airport, which is also the only road to enter the city. Unique in the world: when a plane...More

There's nothing great about this. We hiked along the entire rock and was an amazing experience. We went out of our way to this place which we could've avoided.
