The views from the Cable Car’s Top Station, located 412 m above sea level, are truly spectacular and it will take you only 6 minutes to get to the top.
The base station can be found alongside the Alameda Gardens at the southern end of Main Street. Once at the top you will find three terraces, each offering a unique viewpoint over the stunning surroundings. Stretched out beneath you will see two continents, two bodies of water and three countries.
If you are interested in learning more about Gibraltar’s fascinating history and wildlife diversity do not miss out on the Multimedia Tour, which you can pick up at the Cable Car Top Station complex. This personal state-of-the-art, Interactive hand-held Multimedia Guide is included in the price of an adult ticket. (Commentary is available in different languages).
You will find our tailless monkey at the Cable Car Top Station, and they will be more than happy to pose for a photograph. However, please be advised that although they look cute and furry, they are wild animals and must be treated with caution and respect.
For the more energetic, a very pleasant walk from the Top Station will take you into the Nature Reserve. St Michael’s Cave is a 20-minute downhill stroll away and is well worth a visit. Other sites of interest include the Great Siege Tunnels, the “City Under Siege” Exhibition and the Moorish Castle. Entrance to all the above attractions and the 100 Ton Gun are included in the Nature Reserve ticket, which you can purchase separately from the Cable Car base station or, alternatively, from the souvenir shop at the top station.
Also located at the Cable Car Top Station is the Top of the Rock Café and the Mons Calpe Suite Restaurant where you can enjoy a bite to eat whilst enjoying the spectacular views. If you are thinking of celebrating a wedding or a special occasion during your visit to the Rock, the Mons Calpe Suite can be hired for private functions.
