“Reloceta cemetery of Buenos Aires, and Eva Peron”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

What a place, finding the tomb is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack, but there are directions and also help is available. Some of the tombs in Reloceta look like houses and the craftsmanship is amazing. Eva's is an understatement by comparison, and is within her fathers tomb. Well worth the visit as you walk through row after row of tombs, be warned there are cats everywhere! Most are simply sleeping, and ignore you but while walking amid the peace of the cemetery, you may startle one and get a bit of a surprise yourself

“Looking for her tomb”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Looking for Eva's tomb took some finding, its more of a little house. An amazing woman. Good to take time to think of her. Good to actually see where she's put to rest. An amazing cemetry.

“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.
