Trafalgar Cemetery, Gibraltar

4.1
#5 of 16 in Historic Sites in Gibraltar
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.

  • The best part of my trip to Gibraltar apart from the baccy.
  • Atmospheric well kept, worth a visit. Shame about the constant traffic noise but that seems a part if Gibraltar unless you're right up the rock!
  • Just amazing to walk around and read the headstones
  • I'm not sure how I feel about it, it's cemetery, you shouldn't rate it.
  • Historical monument, wonderful place to contemplate the past.
