The tunnels are full of tales from the historic wars and information on how the tunnels were carved out and the stories behind the people involved in their use.

Gibraltar Tours -  World War II Tunnels

World War 2 Tunnels

The most intensive phase of tunnelling in Gibraltar's history came during the Second World War, when the territory played a vital role in the North Atlantic and Mediterranean theatres. The total length of the tunnels increased greatly during the war, from 7 miles (11 km) to 25 miles (40 km).

At the start of the war, the civilian population was evacuated and numerous new tunnels were excavated to create accommodation for the expanded garrison and to store huge quantities of food, equipment and ammunition.

You'll be able to walk through sections of these tunnels to see how the army's operations were carried out, where the soldiers slept and the rooms created for supplies and storage. Enjoy a headset and audio guide to truly take in all the history of these World War II tunnels.

Historic Descent

Finally, on the drive down to your drop-off point, we'll see the outside of Moorish Castle and the old town of Gibraltar. This was a medieval fortification with a huge history with tales of wars, pirates and more!
