this was a real pleasure to see even though you could not enter. looking at it from on top of the old city walls with the ocean in the back ground sets this apart from others

We stopped here on the way to the second fort. Its a bit of a walk up and down hill and through a tunnel but you will be impressed with the intricate and huge memorials. Sadly many of the gravesites are broken/damage or are in poor shape but still cool to see. Be careful in the first part as there... More

This cemetery is fabulous. The statues within the cemetery are certainly something to see. The view from the cemetery is great. Loved the history it holds.

Just a short little stop to take photos and hear some facts on our city tour. How old the graves are from so long ago. Very nicely tended to.

Interesting resting place for the deceased. Buried above sea level below Castle del Morrow. Also, check out the Perla area a unique group of people.

This is part of Del Morrow so you will see this if you go. Worth a leisurely walk through to see the artistic grave markers. Some are falling apart but then most seem to be over 100 years old and in this climate I guess that is expected. Be careful when you walk down the walkway as cars and trucks... More

We enjoyed walking around this cemetery by the ocean. There are historic graves, some in very poor condition, some very well maintained. An interesting stop if you're over near El Morro!
