The cemetery is ok as a cemetery, but I felt it should not be a tourist attraction. Most of the tombs have the coffins in plain sight and I felt very uncomfortable. This should be a place of peace and respect and it is full...More

This cemetery is one-of-a-kind and encompasses the whole of the Argentine story in its structures. Beautiful for the architecture alone, you can walk around it for hours in wonder and amazement. Eventually, get yourself a guide at the front entrance who speaks your language so...More

We spent a very pleasant half day visiting the cemetery on a walking tour. It was very interesting and definitely worth a visit. Be aware however of pick pockets this didn't affect us but the guards told us there had been several thefts that day.

If you've ever visited New Orleans' historic cemeteries, you have an idea of what awaits you in a visit to Recoleta -- think St. Louis Cemetery on steroids! We visited on a blustery, misty day -- perfect weather in which to roam among the tombs...More

As well as Eva Peron's grave, this is worth visiting just to see the extravagant graves here. Some are the size of small houses and the majority are well maintained. We found it very interesting.

I have never visited a cemetery like this before - it's out of this world. It is truly worth a visit to see all of the amazing graves, but I recommend visiting with a guide that could point you to come of the 80+ monuments...More

This cemetery is one of only three in the world. Literally could spend all day looking at different architectural influences of mausoleums and extravagance of burials. Evita is buried here and most visited. A must see!

We went with just the purpose of seeing Evita's final resting place. We ended out spending much more time wandering around the place. Very interesting place that seems almost like a town of its own.
