Went here after walking along the promenade of the old town walls. It overlooks the rough sea and is very scenic. You have to stand on a wall to have a good look down at it but it is well worth the effort,.

Wandered down from El Morro to this cemetery on the edge of the beach. Very interesting reading some of the history of San Juan from the headstones. Great view of the sea as well!

Went to cemetery while looking at historic sites. This is a well kept cemetery full of history. The cemetery has some wonderful marble statues such as angels and other pieces which families remember loved ones. I would highly recommend a walk thru this place.

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.
