The oldest Jewish cemetery in the Americas. Maybe even in the Western hemisphere. It dates from 1656; the oldest stone is from 1668 or 1662.
The Isla refinery smoke, carried over the graveyard by the constant Trade Wind, has caused heavy corrosion. Some stones have been duplicated and others were taken away, but the damage is heavy and still growing.
It is a point of interest for many Jewish tourists from the U.S.A., who never fail to pay it a visit.
Once sent a Jewish friend a postcard of this place: "Wish you were here." He loved it; but then, he called himself 'Hymie'
