Panteón Nacional Román Baldorioty de Castro


Panteón Nacional Román Baldorioty de Castro, also known as Cementerio Antiguo de Ponce, is Ponce's oldest cemetery-turned-museum. With over a hundred years of history since its inauguration in 1842, it was converted into an official pantheon in 1991. This famous burial place is considered Puerto Rico's only National Pantheon, as well as the only cemetery made into a museum in the Caribbean. As the name leads on, the remains of the famous politician Baldorioty de Castro are located here, as well as those of other illustrious people.
