Santa María Magdalena de Pazzis

The Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis is San Juan's best known cemetery. It is the final resting place of many of Puerto Rico's most prominent figures. Construction began in 1863 in the shadow of Castillo de San Felipe del Morro (El Morro). It is a popular site for tourists to visit and is known for its orange colored dome.
