I didn't expect to be reviewing a cemetery, but this is no ordinary cemetery. There are paved 'streets' lined with mausoleums in a huge variety of architectural styles built over some hundreds of years. It is fascinating. Evita's mausoleum is there and there was a constant stream of tourists in that street. There were several tourist groups in the cemetery... More

It's truly inspiring to walk through a sculpture garden in memory of if folks who have passed. Magnificent pieces of Art in honor of those lives have impacted us. Most unusual with lots of history.

Recoleta is a beautiful district of Buenos Aires and one of the main tourist destinations is the cemetery where Eva Peron is. A very serene place to stroll around. When we stopped at a bar to have a drink we checked the bar prices first and were amazed to see that the bar/cafe we looked at was charging £5 for... More

Make it a point to go to the museum displaying Evita's clothes, shoes, photos, death mask, etc. At first I found very little English on the displays but as I moved farther in, I found enough to make the museum very worthwhile. Then go to her final resting place in the Recoleta cemetary. The tombs there are fascinating, but you... More

Probably one of the most amazing cemeteries in the world. Unlike anything I have seen before. Some very fancy accommodations for a cemetery!

great to wander around the tombs, Evita's is no 88. A family tomb with no pretence. A bit of quiet in bustling Buenos Aires

The buildings in the area were stunning and we enjoyed walking around the area during the day time. We did a free walking tour that took us to parts of the this area that was great.

Recoleta is a great square where you have the cemetery where Evita Peron tumble is, you have a mall with great view, a small and beautiful church, great restaurants and the amazing thing there is the green area where you can seat, relax and comtemplate the huge and tremendous impressive trees. You may consider going during the day and one... More
