A very serene and ethereal place in the centre of a buzzing part of Buenos Aires. The tombs themselves exhibit some really interesting contemporary funerary themes. Just avoid the intensely annoying people in the entrance who pester you incessantly to buy maps.

This is a must do: some very famous people are buried there. Also the architecture, and beauty of the memorials will keep you snapping pictures all day. there are shady spots to rest.

Calm and generating a sense of peacefullness the cemetary is a unique place of avenues, shrines , mausoleums and history. Evita Perron and Domingo Sarmiento tombs are just a few historic names you can find there. Love the Gomera trees at the entrance.

This cemetary is very interesting. It is like a mini city of mini highrises within a city. Each masoleum is different from the next. Some are immaculate and some are in disrepair due to the cost of upkeep.

Very strange, but very interesting experience. A piece of mystery in the middle of the city. The cemetery located in the heart of Recoleta district, one of the famous and one of the richest part of the city. My advise to read a little bit about the history of Argentina to have some idea about the people there. Anyway it... More

A must see while visiting the Recoleta neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, this cemetary was inaugurated in 1822. It has over 4800 mausoleums of different stature as well as statues to honour the elite of Argentina. This cemetery is the final resting place of Presidents, Writers, Political leaders, Military, Poets and of the well known first lady of Argentina Eva Duarte... More

Recoleta cemetery is a must see when visiting Buenos Aires. Make sure to purchase a map for $40 Argentine Pesos, which is roughly $2.50 USD. Evita Peron is buried there, but walk around and look at the beautiful mausoleums. It's very touristy and there are loads of buses daily, but either go when it first opens around 7am to about...

This is a wonderful place to wander . One can spend a brief or very long time. I'd course Evita's grave is probably most visited.

Everybody goes to see Eva Peron's tomb, but the whole complex is fascinating to explore. There are thousands of graves in the cemetery, all with different types of architecture, and it's so much fun to get lost in the little alleyways in between the tombs. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
