There was a cable car that you could take to the top but we decided to huff it. The sun was out, it was a remarkably clear day and we wanted to save the money. Weīd spent 10 euros on two pints of beer but 18 on a roundtrip cable ride seemed ridiculous! HA! So we ended up hiking the Mediterranean Steps up the backside, hanging out with tons of birds, walking acoss the top, stopping to see some monkeys and back through the tunnels and Moorish castle sites. We actually didnīt pay to see any of the tourist sites as they didnīt seem worth it. The views on the hike were great and that was all we needed to enjoy the Rock of Gibraltar. As we were leaving, the road going out (and coming in) has a airplane landing strip which everyone has to cross. It had just been closed off so we got to see a plane land and then took the bus back to Algecerias.
