A small cemetery at the end of the Main Street, full of green and graves of soldiers and sailors, out of whom only two took part in the Battle of Trafalgar with Admiral Nelson. A place to relax in the hustle and bustle of the town, there are even a few benches to sit on.

This venue is at the end of main street, through the archway. As title says this is well looked after and peaceful. One suggestions however could be that the trees within the venue could be placed informing of the names.

It is called the Trafalgar cemetery only because 2 sailor from the battle died of wounds in Gibraltar when the Nelson's flagship the Victory stopped in Gibraltar for refitting to repair things and re supply food etc. All of the sailors killed in the battle of Trafalgar were buried at sea.

I stumbled across The Trafalgar Graves when out exploring the area and stopped to learn about the history and read what was written on the plaques. It is a small graveyard that tells the story of those lost in battle.

We wouldn't visit here or even found it, but our minivan to the top of the rock left us just outside of this cemetary. Not alone the cemetary itself, but you can take beautiful pictures from here to the top as well.

This site is history. When you walk between the grave markers please read every memorial. Take only photographs and leave only footprints.

Set right by the bastion wall just off the end of Main Street, we walked around on our way to the Cable Car Station. The cemetery is well kept and has some interesting facts on the information boards dotted around.

Although Lord Nelson's remains are actually back in jolly old England, there is a small cannon monument here in his memory. This is indeed called a "cemetery," however, many of the dead were actually either lost or buried at sea. They are memorialized here in this sweet little graveyard with actual tombstones, some of which were moved from another location... More

Very small but although called Trafalgar Cemetrary. Only a very few were killed in that battle and buried there. Most of the others died of the plague.
