Gibraltar Botanic Gardens

If you want to explore the history of Gibraltar then the Botanic Gardens are full of ancient monuments that date back hundreds of years. The famous Eliott Memorial, which shares the same name as our accommodation in Gibraltar, can be found among the greenery of the gardens. Commissioned by General Don in 18515, the statue was built in memory of George Augustus Eliott and there’s an interesting history behind it. The original monument was made using wood taken from the Spanish ship San Juan Nepomuceno, but was replaced in 1858 by the bronze version that still stands there today. Head over to the Botanic Gardens and walk in the footsteps of some of the area’s most famous historical figures.

The gardens sit at 50m above sea level. To find the gardens travel south of the centre of Gibraltar beyond the 16th century defensive walls and Trafalgar Cemetery.
