Trafalgar Cemetery, 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.

  • We walked here and found this ancient cemetery steeped with history well manicured and head stones revealing dates in the 18 century The cemetery is shad by trees and presented well  more »
  • We found Trafalgar Cemetery by accident at the end of Main Street. Most of the grave stones are hard to read, but it was a fascinating place.  more »
  • The tomb for the two sailors buried together who were killed by the same cannonball was very sobering. A must site to visit.  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"
