Key West’s Nun Cemetery

That’s right, a cemetery only for nuns, those who serve others their entire lives have an honored burial-place of their own. The sign above the cemetery gate reads: ‘Our Lady Of Lourdes Pray For Us’.

Though I must admit it may feel a tad eerie upon walking up to the cemetery gates. You’ll first notice the black-hooded figure with a now pale white face upon a memorial. I’m sure the faded bust at one time looked more like a representation of its person than it does now looking almost ghostly.

You can find these otherwise peaceful surroundings in a garden atmosphere at the St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church Gardens located left of their activity building at the corner of Truman Avenue & Windsor Lane.
