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.

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.

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.
Worth visiting for 15 minutes or so to read about the Battle of Trafalgar which took place near here. One or two interesting headstones of sailors killed at sea.
