Neat little walk around the lighthouse with signs (both English and Spanish) giving history and plants names, however it was in much better shape when we were here last year. Needs a lot of weeding and gardening.

This is an old lighthouse with history, and places where you can read about it. There are also places where you can sit, I recommend going there as well for the sunset, which is beautiful.

A little walk around here was very informative with notice boards giving lots of information. And great views of Gibralter.

Situated at the town side of the port, the lighthouse is small and uninteresting. Don't go to any effort to see it.

Was expecting to be overcome by cats when visiting this place, based on previous reviews! There were none on the day we went. There are some informative panels about the gardens that have been planted and the lighthouse itself (still manned, what an amazing job!)....More

This unusual looking lighthouse looks odd amidst its surroundings, which I think makes it all the more unusual.

When I was there the lighthouse was not only closed, it was fenced off. However it is an attractive structure and it was nice to wander around it. The rest of the area is a little grim

Being cat lovers my partner decided that she would spend more time looking for the cats in the garden than looking at the light house. Its in between the rubble area and the work huts. Its nice, but not in my opinion worth a special...More
