Old Urban Cemetery, also known as Cementerio Municipal, in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, is a cemetery with burials back to 1813 or 1814. Near to the town of Aguadilla's north entrance, it spreads between the beach and the foot of the mountain, and is enclosed by mortar and stone walls. Many of its older tombs, make of bricks, stone and mortar, were damaged in a 1918 earthquake (presumably the 1918 San Fermín earthquake). The cemetery began to be used when burials were no longer allowed in the churchyard. Graves include that of poet-laureate José de Jesús Esteves, painter Rafael Arroyo Gely, and Luis R. Esteves (the first Puerto Rican graduate of West Point). It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.

The view is absolutely stunning. We could not figure out a way to enter the cemetery, but we were able to view from above in several directions.
