The Moorish Castle Complex (The Tower of Homage and The Gate House), Gibraltar

3.0
A contemporary of the more famous Alhambra, The Moorish Castle Complex (The Tower of Homage and The Gate House) proudly bears the scars of many sieges it has withstood over the centuries. The original fortifications were built around 1160, but the castle's most prominent feature, its main tower, as well as its walls, gatehouse, and bastions date back to the 14th century, or the second Moorish period. You can easily observe the structure of the castle and absorb the medieval atmosphere from the outside. Entering the tower doesn't add much in the way of illuminating information: no exhibits, just some historical facts you can find out otherwise if you don't feel like paying the entrance fee. A visit to The Moorish Castle Complex (The Tower of Homage and The Gate House) represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Gibraltar online vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • This is a historical Moorish castle. A good historical tourist attraction. The climb is tiring if you are not healthy. The view excellent .  more »
  • If you have a combi ticket it is there, no idea what a loose ticket costs but for the money would rather have looked at WW II corridors, which, incidentally, only costs with a guide for 8 pounds per person.

  • Amazing, we were the only ones there and there is so much preservation that you can walk around inside a castle ruin on multiple floors. Often there isn't much left but this one has the bathroom still there! Oh and the views of the city are amazing as well. I filmed inside so no pics but I promise it's worth the visit.
  • The castle is really interesting and the view from the top is nice. You might find some monkey around the place. If you are passionate about history or architecture it's a good attraction. The visit lasts about 20 minutes.
