“It's rumored that she's not really in this tomb anymore”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This is Evita's dad's family's tomb and it's worth a look but there's lots of talk that Evita is not really buried inside. Still cool to see and this is the burial site of her familial relations. Try to visit during the week or early in the day before the tour bus rush.

“A guide is a must.”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

do take a guide to take you around Recoleta Cementary, they will make it "come alive" and they will point out things you'd never have noticed otherwise. it makes all the difference, trust me I've been there several times and done that!

“Piece of History”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Visit all "Cementerio de la Recoleta" and this is the most visited tomb. The whole Cemetery is a dilighful place, and the Park and buildings sorrounding it also.

“Awesome”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Not the nicest or biggest mausoleum, but iconic and highly visited. Flesh flowers adore her grave. If you are fortunate enough to visit in the rain, you can have her all to yourself. We did! A must see while in BA

“Not much can be expected of a tomb”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

It is just a tomb, so it can't be rated to highly. But it's interesting to visit for the history and importance of this important figure in Argentine history. The rest of the cemetery is interesting as well and it's located in Recoleta which is a lovely neighbourhood so it's definitely worth visiting while you're in the area.
