National Cemetery at Presidio - San Francisco visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'National Cemetery at Presidio' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from California.

Solemn and tranquil, this oldest National Cemetery on the Pacific coast is the final resting place of some of America's war veterans, heroes and their families, including 35 Medal of Honor recipients. As of 2007, there are 31576 people laid to rest here and the cemetery has been closed to further internments other than family.

The Presidio became the most important military base on the West Coast during numerous wars and military engagements and this historic National Landmark is revered by Americans. It is fitting tribute that many of America's fallen heroes are laid to rest here in honored ground and where they can be remembered by visitors who come to contemplate the dignified and memorable history in this remarkably beautiful location.
