"Historic Grave Site"

This adobe-walled cemetery, now a restful stop for visitors of the bustling Old Town area, was first established in 1849 as a private burial place for then prominent San Diego elite. Since then, it has held the remains of all those dearly departed, from outlaws to the parish priest. One story tells of an Antonio Garra, who was the Chief of the San Luis Rey Indians, who rebelled against the settlers in 1880. He was apparently executed, then buried on this site but not before being forced to dig his own grave!
