This is a gorgeous place to be buried, not that they can see the view. Seriously, it's a historic and beautiful cemetery, and worth some time to walk around and look at the tombstones. It's always windy, but the breeze feels good.

The cemetery is certainly something to see, very beautiful and large grassy area above, the ocean behind and the fort to the side.

I have never seen a cemetery like this one...The extravagant headstones and sound of the ocean makes it a beautiful place to rest

This is a beautiful cemetery right by the ocean. You can see it if you are walking between the two main fortifications of the Old San Juan historical sights. You don't need to go inside cause you can see it from a top view, but feel free to go inside and enjoy the tour.

I saw this cemetery from afar and thought it was a beautiful place for one's final resting place! When visiting the city again, I will be sure to visit this location.

It was a fascinating site to walk through for 30 minutes. Signs or a guide would be better, especially to give some history of the people buried there.

This was on my list. Located next to del Morro. Free Trolley will take you there. Bring your camera. If you are afraid of heights you should not venture onto the walls as they are quite high, and it is windy here. No cost.

The views here are beautiful. My husband and I wandered for quite a while. We were walking through the city and happened upon the cemetery mid afternoon and were disappointed that they close at 3:00. I did manage to get some great photos!
