Trafalgar Cemetery, Gibraltar

4.1
#5 of 12 in Historic Sites in Gibraltar
Cemetery Tourist Spot
Tucked away in what used to be a defensive ditch during Spanish rule, Trafalgar Cemetery hosts an annual ceremony dedicated to the eponymous battle. Despite its name, this cemetery is the final resting place of mariners killed in other battles or by yellow fever. Only two graves hold the remains of lieutenants who took part in Lord Nelson's epic victory. Nelson's body was never interred here, but transferred back home to London. The monument commemorating his leadership in this historic battle was erected in 1992.

  • Old cemetery virtually in the Centre of the city. Very well maintained. You can learn from the history of visiting the cemetery. Easy to hit, because the cemetery is located on the Main Street, with a view to the lower terminus.

  • A small cemetery quiet and peaceful. Some interesting reading on the Plaques, Headstones and Information Boards. Worth a half hour wander through if you are passing.  more »
  • Too many people walk past this delight without noticing it. It's at the end of Main Street before you turn up the hill to the Rock Hotel. It's only small but worth a 15 minute slight detour.  more »

  • Very moving place. If your interested in Nelson this is worth a visit.
  • A history laden quiet haven and an appropriate place in which to contemplate the meaning of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
  • Historic location of the burials of some of the British sailors who died at Trafalgar. The place was tidied up quite a bit last year and can be an unexpected oasis of calm and shade on a hot busy day
  • Good
  • From the exciting nearby stand minibuses offer can top. For those who are afraid of the cableway, or came with a dog-otlichnjaj option! Recommend Charlie not only answered a bunch of questions, so still all the way told stories in Spanish and English. Stayed in interesting places. Showed how to properly feed the monkeys and had with a feed. Ticket on his bus the same included a visit to a very beautiful caves on the way to the top. So this review is about the work of Charlie, and cemetery-absolutely "nothing"
