For the more adventurous, who dare to walk up to the top of the RockOn the way you will surely meet the famous Gibraltar monkeys that inhabit the rock, and at the same time you will enjoy a beautiful landscape surrounded by nature. Although you should be careful with personal belongings and food, as they will want to take them, they are still wild animals and their behaviour can be unpredictable.

However, it should be borne in mind that walking up to the crag of Gibraltar After a 2.5 hour walk uphill, it is possible to take the cable car back down to the town on the way back.
