Puerto Rico – Castillo San Felipe del Morro and the Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery


We headed to old San Juan again this time to visit the Santa Maria Magdalena De Pazzis Cemetery.  This is a really big Cemetery with lots of mausoleums.  I didn’t take nearly as many pictures as my sister did but it was an interesting place to go to.

There was a small part in the back with some caskets there.  Not sure what happened to the bodies but not my business.  This cemetery is right near the water and my husband walked around the back there.

I love the fort in the background.

Some of the graves are new and in great condition but some of them are not.  This one had fallen over

It has always amazed me how much money is probably spent on these.  Some of them are really amazing.  I liked this one very much. wpid-puerto-rico-indio-33.jpg

The sculpturing is amazing

We then went up headed up to El Morro.  On the way there we saw a few cruise ships coming in.

We then headed up to the fort.  I had not been here since I was about 13 or so.  Quite obviously nothing has changed much in the past 30 years. wpid-puerto-rico-indio-41.jpg

They actually had a cake of the fort.  It was pretty cool.  This is the outside.

After the fort we walked around and got some coffee.

We then left as we were leaving we drove by some of the cruise ships.  I was able to take a few quick shots.
