Guns of Gibraltar

Visit the guns of Gibraltar:

Guns (Ordnance) that can be seen throughout Gibraltar.


Gibraltar's had very important guns that have formed part of its history. Finding out the story behind each of these guns is a history lesson in itself.

In Gibraltar there were a total of 14 x 9.2” guns.(see picture on the right)

The 9.2” BL (breech loading) coast defence gun became the standard armament for long range defence, alongside the 6” quick-firing gun for closer defence and the 12 pounder for inshore work.

These three gun were to become the backbone of British coastal defences at Mediterranean stations up until World War II. See also the 100 Ton Gun

...but, by far, the most important gun Gibraltar has, is the 100 Ton Gun that is found at the Napier of Magdala Battery.
