Cementerio de la Recoleta review Rate it

The cemetery, opened in 1822, is home to hundreds of illustrious corpses, laid out in a compact yet very extensive maze of granite, marble and bronze mausoleums. Originally a public cemetery, it is now even harder to get into than the posh flats that surround it. Many Argentinian presidents are entombed here, but most of the cemetery's visitors probably come to see the resting place of María Eva Duarte de Perón, aka Evita.
