  • i.e. visiting el morro take a peek. but otherwise, it's not worth taking a trip just for this. beautiful view of the ocean.  more »
  • Just impressive and marvelous to see so many tombs with so many renowned Puerto Rico residents. If you like to relive history, this a great place to do so.  more »
  • This is a good spot to spend a few minutes while you're visiting Castillo de San Cristobal. It's located right next door and has an excellent view of the ocean.  more »
