“Beautiful resting place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2012

It was raining pretty hard the day we were there and we took shelter in the tunnel/driveway that leads to the graveyard gate. This has to be the most beautiful resting place in the world.

“Great if you find these places interesting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

The cemetery sits on the side of the fort and the "residents" have the most amazing views out to sea - some of the headstones are spectacular marble and some bizarre, easy walking distance from the Fort, worth seeing if you are in the area

“Worth the walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

and the trafiic. Everytime I think I know what a bad jam is like, a new one takes the cake. Thank you, Old San Juan. Regardless, once you are parked and on foot, the city is very easy to navigate. Of all the great sites, the Cemetary over the ocean is probably the best. Just watch out for kites!

“Creepy but beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

It's amazing to think how old the cemetery and fort are. It's very green surrounding. We over looked it from the grass, as part of our city tour through Old San Juan. Everyone must stop in Old San Juan when in Puerto Rico.

“Most beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

This little cemetery set right beside the Caribbean Sea is the most beautiful I've ever seen. It is filled with white headstones and white statues of Christ, Mary, the Nativity and Angels. It is so beautiful with the aqua blue sea, the blue sky, and the round red domed chapel dedicated to Mary Magdalene, with the flags of Fort del Morro flying in the background.
