There is something very peaceful and serene about the whole place. The monuments are beautiful and really honor the people who are buried here.

I went to the San Juan Cemetery on a Saturday afternoon to find it was not open. There wasn't hours posted so I can't say when it is open. I was able to walk above it to see it in it's entirety and get some pictures and it looks gorgeous! If you are into photos I could tell that the... More

Right along the ocean. A must place to see. The architecture is incredibly beautiful. You are able to drive down to the cemetery but we chose to look at the place along the fort wall.

Beautiful and peaceful cemetery overlooking the ocean. We saw it from El Morro and respected it by not visiting while viewing its tranquility from afar

If you have time to explore Old San Juan, the San Juan Cemetery should be added to your place to visit. The cemetery official name is "Cementario Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis, but is better known as "San Juan Cemetery" or "Santa Maria Magdalena" cemetery.
