The oldest cementery in San Juan is open to the public free of charge. It's right outside of the El Morro walls. The views are spectacular. You'll find the graves of prominent citizens, and important historical figures.

We arrived at the cemetery by accident. We were heading to El Morro fort and saw it. We walked through the Cemetery and it was very beautiful.

The Atlantic Ocean next to the cemetery, the sight is still must see. Lots of grass area to stand in any location to get a good picture.

Go see this on your way to El Morro. Very large and interesting cemetery. Really cool designs on graves and crypts. Also amazing views to the ocean from the wall. Very peaceful and great for pictures.

Cemetery visits are not usually on the radar, however, being one of our tourist attraction stops, we had to admire its beauty and uniqueness. We stopped to take a few photos then were scurried away. This burial ground is a popular attraction where many famous celebrities, politicians, actors etc were buried. It is a very popular tourist stop.
