Cemetery notes and/or description:
Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery is a colonial-era cemetery located in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is the final resting place of many of Puerto Rico's most prominent natives and residents. Before it was designated an official cemetery, there was a “Cementerio Provisional” on the same grounds, dating to 1845. Construction for the official cemetery began in 1863 under the auspices of Ignacio Mascaró and it was opened in 1865, with an expansion in 1884. The side closest to the chapel is the older section, while the side closest to the current entrance is the newest section. The cemetery is located outside the walls of Fort San Felipe del Morro fortress, with a wall averaging 40 feet in height and 15-20 feet in width. It was named in honor of Saint María Magdalena de Pazzi (no “s” at the end).
When visiting this location it is better to head west on PR-25R (Avenida Luis Muñoz Rivera) and take calle Norzagaray until you reach the park garage located underneath the Plaza del Quinto Centenario (GPS: 18.468338, -66.119170). Then you can walk down Calle Del Cementerio, through the underground tunnel to reach the cemetery’s entrance.
