Gibraltar Sights

Rosia Bay

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 06/11/2014

Fodor's Review

There are fine views to be had if you drive up above Rosia Bay. The bay was where Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory, was towed after the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. On board were the dead, who were buried in Trafalgar Cemetery on the southern edge of town—except for Admiral Nelson, whose body was returned to England, preserved in a barrel of rum.
