Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery


The Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery or more commonly known as the Old San Juan Cemetery was officially established in the late 1800s and is the burial site of some of Puerto Rico’s most famous citizens. Inside the cemetery, there’s a beautiful view of El Morro to one side, and La Perla to the other. Facing the island, you will be greeted by the colorful houses of Old San Juan when you look upwards. In the middle, there is a small chapel, where you may get an aerial view of the nearby tombs. It’s a beautiful and peaceful place to visit because of the blue skies, white stones, and the green foliage growing on some of the walls.
