Owner description: The most celebrated Argentineans, including Eva Peron and her family, are buried at this elaborate cemetery, where mausoleums replicate chapels, pyramids and Greek temples.

Highlight is the Evita tomb but many other beautiful tombs to see that are like art. Stray cats add to the character

The cemetery should not be missed. There are many special areas and stories to be heard. You should plan to spend extra time here to really be able to step back and reflect on the lifes that have been memorialized here.

This is like no other cemetary in the world. A must see while visiting Buenos Aires. You could spend hours seeing the different tombs and never get bored. Quite fascinating, especially when you consider the money spent on the tombs and then consider the economy of the city itself.

Quite unique to see this cemetery, and view the elaborate tombstones and graves! The cemetery is right in the midst of a busy shopping area, and is worth a visit!

Okay, this cemetary was not what I expected - more like a miniature city than a typical final resting place. We toured it through Buenos Tours half-day tour and thought it worthwhile. There are some good stories to be heard and some beautiful sculptures and memorials to enjoy. It's fascinating how families must maintain a lease on their loved ones' plots! You can sell your plot to another family if times get hard, and they relocate the "inhabitants." Anyway, this is worth an hour of your touring time.
