Trafalgar Square

A photo from one of the more famous places in London, Trafalgar Square. Located in the City of Westminster, the square used to be known as Charing Cross, but now commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, which took place in 1805 and ended in a naval victory for Great Britain in the Napoleonic Wars with Spain and France. Admiral Horatio Nelson, who died in the battle, overlooks the square from his 52m tall column. That part of the square, however, can’t be seen here. This photo features the National Gallery, an art museum housing some 2,300 paintings and founded in 1824 and St Martin-in-the-Field, an Anglican church, dedicated to Saint Martin of Tours.
