Look for map on sign outside entrance to find Evita’s grave. It’s not in a prominent place. Nor is it very impressive. Perhaps I should have taken the tour and learned about the other historical figures there.

A place with a lot of history, you should go visit it. Care that closes at 5. Then take advantage and know Plaza France, which is down there

Although this is the final resting place of Eva Peron it is far more than this. Some of the mausoleums are as big as a small apartment. Some is good condition others very neglected. It is fascinating to stroll around

We saw this place as part of a small group city tour. This was right at the end of that tour but the whole place was fascinating. I suppose the ‘highlight’ was to see the family mausoleum where you will find Eva Peron. Even more...More

One can walk for hours, so go on a nice day. Amazing stone and blacksmithing! Time continues the patina and some tombs have fared better than others. I saw coffins deteriorating inside their crypts. Others look fresh as yesterday.

Spent some time here wandering around. Check the map at the entrance to locate Evita’s mausoleum. Glad we visited.

Characterized by the French-style mansions which are

Take the line H (yellow one) to Las Heras. From there it is a short walk to the cementery. For further information about public transportation download the app ‘Como Llego’, it’s very helpful.
