This cemetery is solemn and beautiful. There are hundreds of exquisitely carved stones and should not be missed. Enter from the road going down near El Morro as it is the easiest.

I found this to be a very interesting place to visit while in San Juan. I really enjoy history and thought our guide did a really nice job on this stop. I would recommend checking out this site to see it for yourself.

Great place to visit and take pictures. It was very picturesque and relaxing. Take the free tram to make the visit more friendly on the body.

Most beautiful cemetery I has ever seen.. The ocean as a backdrop, and Ft El Morro as a neighbor.. Who could ask for a most restful place to be buried.

We toured this site and to our surprise the head stones were not that old. Very small and kind of confusing to get too. Go through the tunnel at the bottom. lol

A very unusual cemetery compared to those the the States. Like in Louisiana all the graves are above ground vaults. Next to Del Morro fortress, next to the see, it has a very stunning setting. Absolutely take a look if you are visiting del Morro.

Located next to Castillo San Felipe del Morro, this can be a interesting stop while visiting Old San Juan, this place is full of big tombstones with amazing statues, also the view of the ocean from there is quite beautiful. Pleasant experience!!!
