Welcome to Gibraltar's Nature Reserve
The Gibraltar Nature Reserve was established (on the Rock of Gibraltar) in 1993 under the International Union for Conservation of Nature‘s category. Now home of the Gibraltar Monkeys (Barbary Macaques), the Gibraltar Nature Reserve is annually visited by hundreds of thousands of visitors and locals.
The Nature Reserve is also vitally important for migrating birds and also supports the local flora and fauna.

The Cable Car is definitely an experience if you are visiting Gibraltar. Nevertheless, please note that none of the Cable Car stations is close to the majority of the attraction sites in the Upper Rock. If you have mobility issues, going up via the Cable Car is not recommended.
