SAINT MARIA MAGDALENA de PAZZIS
Santa María 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.
(Notice one of them: Félix Benítez Rexach)
Construction began in 1863 under the auspices of Ignacio Mascaro.
The cemetery is located outside the walls of Fort San Felipe del Morro fortress, one of the island’s most famous landmarks. The average height of the wall is 40 feet and the width ranges from 15 to 20 feet.
It was named in honor of Saint Maria Magdalena de Pazzi.

Beautiful! I love the history. I think there was a pharmacy chain Rexach as well. Any relation? Old San Juan is one of my favorite places. Thanks for sharing.
