Now that the weeds have been pulled and the site is renovated, the gates of this old cemetery in the center of town have officially been unlocked and opened to the public. Many of the graves date back more than 300 years, the most significant being that of William Walker, the American adventurer who launched several invasions of Central American nations and was shot by firing squad in Trujillo in 1860. His grim end is noted on his epitaph with the word "fusilado."
