Curacao Cemetery: Militaire Begraafplaats 06/07/19

A military cemetery on Roodeweg in Otrabanda, next to the fire station. It was restored in 2006, and is maintained by by volunteer members of SMEC ( Foundation Military Heritage Curaçao). Burials date from the 19th centrury, and include military members from several countries who died on or in the vicinity of Curacao. The gate is normally locked, but there are regular sessions on the first Saturday morning of each month to clean and maintain the site, and they are welcoming of visitors interested in learning about the local military history represented by cemetery.
