We came accross the cemetery as we were walking to find Duval St.
We took a wring turn and there we were.
It is a primary above ground cemetery with many artistic features. We obtained a pamphlet at the entry to guide us as we made the walking tour of the area.
We found that in the center area of the cemetery is a memorial to the sailors lost in the USS Maine explosion in Havanna harbor. There is a fenced area with the graves and a sailors statue with flag. It was an interesting find to see this bit of history I had heard about, but did not know of the link to Key West.
I am a photographer and found this to be an interesting location for photos. We spent about an hour in the cemetery before setting off again for Duval Steet.
