Beautiful old cemetery. There is so much history in the beautiful city. The cemetery is at the foot of one of the two forts in Old San Juan. There is a lot of walking partly on a hillside, but the views and history are amazing! You do not want to miss this.

The most remarkable cemetery I have ever seen! This is the perfect place for a mortal body to spend eternity in. If you haven't got the time to walk through it, at least make an effort to see it from the walls of Castillo de San Felipe del Morro. Another must visit when in San Juan!

Best views in all of San Juan. Some of my favorite pictures I took right here. Very peaceful place. Take lunch and picnic on the hill. The breeze is wonderful.

Absolutely beautiful view. Needs some work. Some stones are busted, not sure if the occupants found their way out? Very crowded. Since we were walking from San Cristobal it was easy to get to.

The cemetery is a very interesting place to view from the top and take photos. The location next to and above the ocean is extremely picturesque and definitely worth the trip to the end of town, even if you don't plan on seeing the Castillo.

We rode the free trolley to the stop before the fort and walked down to the cemetery. Only way to get down there is to walk on on a dangerous road that curves and has a tunnel under the fort's lawn area. Cars speed up and down it- so listen for them when going up or down. Very steep so... More
