The cemetery is very interesting and of course is dominated by the mausoleum of evict a which still has fresh flowers delivered every day. A lovely Sunday craft market in the adjacent park but be wary of food/drink prices in the surrounding streets

This is a site not to miss in Buenos Aires. Some of the most unique tombs in the world inside this cemetery of the aristocrats of Argentina. Eva Peron had a very modest resting place. Enjoyed the tomb of Luis Fripo, the great Chilean boxer. Great carvings and statutes in many parts of the cemetary

There is a square where the cemitery of Evita is located that has a handicraft market at saturdays. There are two or three bars where you could have some Quilmes while wait for your wife buy some stuffs.

The price is right (free), and the 1 mile walk from our hotel pleasant. This cemetery is unlike any other I have other seen. It is more or less its own little city with the mausoleums essentially their own buildings along something resembling little streets.

Ono of the more fashionable neiborghoods of Buenos Aires, you'll find many residences built by famous architects in the early twentieth century, some of them recycled as embassies or 5* hotels. Many parks, a couple of exposition centers and the Museum of Arts are within the limits. During the weekends, you can stroll through a craft market.

One of my favorite stops in Buenos Aires, especially the old quarters full of colors where the original Italian immigrants lived. There are many souvenir shops, some with good bargains for leather, wool scarves and stones.

This is one of Buenos Aires major attractions. You must visit the cemetery and listen to the stories. It´s like a city within the city, with avenues, narrow streets, trees....and lots of art works. It´s the largest coleection of stain-glass in the world. Fantastic.
