In my opinion, a visit to Recoleta Cemetery is incomplete without visiting the Duarte Masoleum, the burial site of Eva Peron. According to our guide, she is still a divisive figure in Argentina, revered by the poor and abhorred by the wealthy. Whatever the politics, her tomb continues to attract large crowds every day. Fresh flowers, tokens of love and... More

Visiting the site where all the mausoleums are is amazing. Eva Perons mausoleum is on the far side of the site, it is like a miniature city for the dead.

While the tomb itself is interesting, it is the overall cemetery that is incredibly fascinating. Be prepared for large crowds around her tomb

Eva Peron's Tomb is Super to See but spend an Hour or So looking at the many other tombs in the Cemetery. It is really interesting to Look at the Pictures, Carvings and Read the Testimonials.

The Recoleta Cemetery is intriguing for an Anglican like me to see with all these open tombs and glimpses of coffins within - yes very morbid and ghoulish but a must see inBA for Eva Peron;s grave to see the offerings still left for her.

This tomb is the busiest and the one attracts the most of the tourists. It is located inside of Recoleta Cemetery. You can easily find it because always there are flowers and it is surrounded by a lot of tourist.

Worth the visit to see a historic cemetery in Buenos Aires. Finding Eva's final resting place is easy, just follow the crowds/tourists. Considered one of the worlds most notable cemeteries it houses the remains of many notable people, Presidents and even Napoleons granddaughter (per Wikipedia).

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
