Trafalgar Cemetery, Gibraltar

4.2
#5 of 15 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.

  • On your way to the Cable Car, stop by Trafalgar Cemetary ... it's on the way ... for a few minutes. A unique part of history and it only takes 5 or 10 minutes.  more »
  • 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 »
