A quiet place to reflect on past events as a lot of the headstones are from previous battles that made the British Empire. The battle of Trafalgar being one, young men and women who perished many years ago

Walked around here, very small but very interesting. Left a donation as it needs to funded for the upkeep. An important piece of history that should be maintained. Worth a visit right at the very end of Main Street.

We hear about the Battle of Trafalgar in school, but here, some of the brave military men involved in this epic event have found their final resting place. Their tombstones tell a bit if the story. Well worth a visit while in Gibraltar.

Was on my to-do list when I visited the rock, can be found at the very end of main street. Very peaceful and tranquil place, and benches to sit on and reflect. However many of the gravestones (due to their age) are no longer readable. The other thing that was disappointing is that clearly people have been try to tidy... More

For the location you would expect this to be noisy but it was a pleasant and tranquil, reflective experience. Seeing the grave of one particular fallen serviceman.....

Weird place to want to visit on a holiday but this tranquil oasis is a must do! The conservation group have worked darned hard at renovating and clearing the graves.

As someone who is interested in Military history and visited many Military cemeteries I was very disappointed with the Trafalgar Cemetery...it is in need of maintenance especially as many of the headstones are unreadable.

Quite small cemetery just outside the S gate - cool on a hot day. Most interesting graves are of two sailors who fought at the eponymous battle. I was interested to learn that Nelson's body was pickled for the return voyage to UK, though!
