World War II Tunnels, Gibraltar
Take a tour through the labyrinth of World War II Tunnels, dug for a British garrison intended to defend Gibraltar from an anticipated German attack that never happened. Amazingly, this historic rock, solid from the outside, is practically an underground city hollowed out by a network of nearly 52 km (32 mi) of tunnels. They were prepared to accommodate the entire garrison of 16,000 soldiers for 16 months. See the recreated hospital--one of the parts of the tunnels actually put to use during the war.

The recreations of different situations with mannequins are very well achieved.
A great peek into the recent history of the Rock of Gibraltar and the critical role it had in WW2. There's not much to see now that it's been decommissioned but still fascinating, you can almost hear the tunnels talking and giving up their secrets... Or maybe it's just the distant echos of the parts of the Rock that are still under MOD control!
Great place to visit, especially if you are interested in the historical facts and culture of Gibraltar before, during and just after World War II. The walk through history and to see the amazing endeavour of everyone who worked and lived is a must for you.
