Beautiful, serene, amazing. Directly adjacent to the Fort of San Cristobal and the large 'yard' area where people/families seem to gather to picnic, fly kites, kick soccer balls.... you can see this beautiful resting place that overlooks the ocean... just lovely.

I had to convince my boyfriend to take a detour here, but I'm so glad we did. The statues within the cemetery (on the graves) are beautiful. It's interesting that nearly everyone has an above ground resting place, as I had never seen that before. The view of the forts and the ocean are also stunning. Definitely worth the walk... More

The cemetery is near Castillo San Felipe del Morro and sandwiched between the ocean and the ocean. Great views from above, inside the wall, looking into the cemetery, and also great views inside the cemetery. Some amazingly ornate graves. Well worth wandering through here.

This is a very quaint cemetery that is tucked away behind the wall of the fort on the ocean-side. Worth the find, very picturesque.

This is a really beautiful cemetery right next to the ocean. It is quite eye-catching and lovely and makes you feel a bit weird staring at it like it's a work of art.

Nice to see with fantastic landscape view and history behind it. Not a must to see but is along the walk of history to tour so mind as well take it all in if you are walking the old san juan city

Get up away from the cemetery for some amazing views as it is located right on the coast. You can also take pictures from inside the fort.

Very little is in English so we didn't know what we were viewing. We should've done some research prior to going for better context. We were struck by the feeling of mourning and sorrow. Many of the graves were topped by sad Christ figures, sad angels, etc.

This was on the tour stop so we got out and walked around, there were other tours there too, the cemetery must be a regular tour stop - it's in the same area as the Fort and National Park; I am not a big fan of cemeteries so can't really say a lot except the grave site is old and... More

My other half loves to visit grave yards, this is amongst the the most beautiful we have seen. It occupies a wonderful seaside spot and the graves seem well cared for.
