Capilla del Cementerio Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis

I took this photo during our last trip to Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.  I’ve been to Old San Juan numerous times, but I never explored the cemetery until this visit.  I got lots of great photos of this spot.  

Here is information on this location that I found on Puerto Rico Historic Building Drawings Society FB page.  Their FB page states that this is a colonial-era cemetery that is the final resting place of many prominent residents.  They started construction in 1863 outside of the walls of Fort Felipe del Morro fortress over looking the Atlantic Ocean.  I found the place very interesting and beautiful in its own way.
