This is a nice place to stroll around and to read the epitaph's on some of the headstones and to escape to the shade. Unfortunately a lot of the stones are unreadable, but the ones that are evokes images of what these men endured at Trafalgar.

I've always said that I hate war. Gibraltar is a magnificent, beautiful and and historic place to visit. Their history and identity means a great deal to them, and Britain would not have become the super-power it had been in previous centuries without the fortress of Gibraltar and its people. Although I hate conflicts, I admire the bravery and determination... More

This will take no more than a few minutes to visit, but the story it tells is quite fascinating. Historically, Britannia would have struggled to 'rule the waves' without Gibraltar and its strategic importance.

Tucked away down a side street overlooking the airport runway/taxiways lies this interesting if small cemetary. Well worth routing it out and having a quiet moment of reflection amongst the headstones.

It's an interesting cemetery, the only thing that was a shame was that the writing on the gravestones has started fading. It would be good if these were refurbished.

This cemetery is located at the gates to the city at the opposite end from the customs area. We jumped the bus at the border crossing and travelled to the end of the route. Got off and started a wander to see what was what - actually trying to find the cable car station. Stumbled on the cemetery which is... More

Seeing so many sailors headstones from the Battle of Trafalgar, along with others of that era brings that part of history home. It is a small area that is very well maintained and again has lots of informative descriptions around. Often 'home' to the monkeys in the evening though!!

I love Trafalgar Cemetery. I love the history. Each stone tells a sad little story. How fantastic that there are still graves there of the sailors who fought in the Battle of Trafalgar. The plants and shade make it a lovely little oasis too.

This is worth a wander. The gravestone inscriptions are real history without any commercial linking at all. So a wander round is rewarding and gives an insight to those days of warfare at sea and empire. The Cemetery itself has been the subject of path and verge improvement but, regrettably, the last two times we've been there the improvement work... More

I quite like to visit historical cemeteries and this one is worth the effort. A lot of the stones are unreadable but you can still get a picture of what was going on. we were only here for less than thirty minutes, thoroughly enjoyed it though.
