Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Gibraltar  /  Trafalgar Cemetery

Trafalgar Cemetery, Gibraltar

4.1
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.

  • This is basically a war Cemetery, nothing more. If you like history and war you can pop in other wise give it a miss.  more »
  • This small cemetery contains the graves of sailors and marines who survived the battle of Trafalgar but died subsequently. A fascinating insight into some naval history.  more »

  • Really interesting place to visit and ponder on the history of Gibraltar. Its only part of the story but being there and standing in the area certainly gave me food for thought.
  • In this little cemetery you find history from 1800. Trafalgar battle with Nelson 1805 was the most important. Is worth a visit for history lovers.
