Princess Caroline’s Battery 2017-06-16T08:30:32+00:00

A great viewpoint without the need to climb to the Siege Tunnels and from where you can clearly see the runway and the frontier.

Princess Caroline’s Battery

Still operating and manned in the early 1980’s this battery has several WWII guns that though now decommissioned still watch over the Bay of Gibraltar. There is a great view of the airfield, the northern part of the city and the border into Spain. The name itself is a misnomer as the battery is really St Anne’s Battery. Princess Caroline’s Battery is located above it and houses the Military Heritage Centre, the road to it is accessed from here and hence the confusion. The guns, now silent, have been recently refurbished and worth a look as a reminder of Gibraltar’s more modern days as a fortress.
