During World War II, Gibraltar served as a key strategical point for the Allied Forces. These caves were made ready to give sanctuary as a bomb-proof military hospital although they were never used. While blasting out a new entrance during the preparation, a further series of caves were discovered--complete with a small lake. It is essential not to wear sneakers or any shoe with a rubbery bottom. The stone stairs are very slippery in spots because of the natural water flow!
Today, the caves have a much more peaceful purpose than that of a would-be wartime trauma unit. Classical concerts, drama and ballet productions are performed here. The stage, with its dramatic lighting and cozy theater seats, makes a serene setting for any fine arts show.
