The Cable Car
The bottom cable car station is situated in the car park near Alameda Gardens. There is a stop at the Apes’ Den and the top of the rock.

Apes’ Den:
I never tire of seeing the apes; it amazes me how like each other we are. My advice is don't feed the apes, but enjoy watching others who have not taken my advice!

The Top of the Rock:
This part is actually in the middle of the rock, not the imposing, eastern-facing part, which is a military location. From the top, you have amazing views of Gibraltar, Spain, and Morocco. You can enjoy a walk round to see more Barbary Apes and have refreshments in the cafe. Take a camera for some spectacular shots!

You have the option of the return trip, or you can walk down the steps and eventually back into the city (my recommended option).
