I never thought I would write a review of a cemetery but this one being located up on a rise draws ones attention. And it should, the men and women buried there served this country, many dying in various wars during that service. The sheer number of white tombstones, all in row upon row, is a little shocking.

This national cemetery was breast taking. Row after row for just a long way. I think this must be as beautiful as the one in Washington. High on a hill.

We went to pay our respects to a relative and were overwhelmed by the beauty and majesty of this place. It is pristine with graves, markers, vaults overlooking the city of Santa Fe. Everything about this place is top notch. Well worth a visit.

OK, so my wife and I like cemeteries. This one has gravesites for soldiers going back to the Civil War, and it is fascinating to walk or drive through (you can do either) and look at the information on the tombstones, of which there are many hundreds. We were quite moved by the experience.

We just laid my husband to rest at the Santa Fe National Cemetery and we had a beautiful service. We were all very moved.

We stopped by the cemetery during our recent trip to Santa Fe and we were not disappointed! There were a number of soldiers that gave their lives across the spectrum of wars we have experienced as a nation and their headstones were very informative to read. Great piece of history!

I loved looking at the different headstones and seeing history especially the civil war section. It had construction which didn't really hinder us. They used to have a radio station you could tune to take the tour. Wish they would bring it back.

I spend time there every Veterans and Memorial Day to say thank you to those who have served their country and now rest in this beautiful site. RIP
