Rosia Bay Gibraltar

Rosia Bay Gibraltar

A hidden tiny natural harbour situated on the western side of the rock near the 100 tonne gun.  This unsung hero of Gibraltar is a place where at least two of the worlds most famous ships have been harboured in Gibraltar while awaiting the outcome after traumatic events.

HMS Victory – was taken to Rosia Bay after the Battle of Trafalgar with Admiral Nelson’s body onboard

The Marie Celeste – The famous ghost ship that was discovered in the Atlantic was taken to Gibraltar and more specifically Rosia Bay while authorities tried to establish what happened to all the missing crew.
