Major Improvements To Gibraltar‘s Key Tourist Attractions In The Upper Rock

A number of key Gibraltar tourist sites have recently undergone refurbishment work and improvement. The Great Siege Tunnels, Moorish Castle, The 100 Ton Gun Exhibition, St Michael’s Cave, Jews’ Gate, The Apes’ Den, The Gibraltar Cruise Terminal and The Waterfront Fountain have all been given enhanced or new accessible facilities.

This has included improved access at St Michael’s Cave where a specialised lift has been installed at the entrance to enable guests to view the Cave from the first landing. New facilities have also been installed for those with impaired hearing. Further improvements to assist visitors with impaired vision are part of future updates.
Gibraltar Tourist Attractions - Upper Rock Nature ReserveThis year has also seen the renovation of the Devil’s Gap footpath. The works have made the path more accessible in a similar way to the Mediterranean Steps, a favoured walk by ramblers to the Rock.
It lies between the junction with Flat Bottom Road in the southern direction and joins Baca’s Passage in the northern direction. This street is the quickest route by foot from the city centre to the Upper Rock Nature Reserve.
A footpath known as the “public footpath to town” leads up from where Devil’s Gap Road meets Baca’s Passage and joins Green Lane near Devil’s Gap Battery in the Nature Reserve.
This street is also known as the Union Jack Steps or the Referendum Steps and was originally painted in 1967 to celebrate Gibraltar’s first sovereignty referendum of that year.

Future works include the installation of new signage on the Upper Town area to provide clear directions for those walking to and from the Upper Rock in this area and to assist visitors on route to the Nature Reserve.
