We were staying not far from here and spent our first morning wandering around the cemetery. It was a really cool, calming, lovely place to visit on a very hot day.
The cemetery is huge and we could have spent a day there easily. It’s free to get in and you can hire a guide at the gate if you so wish.
It’s well worth a visit as there are so many unusual tombs here. Some of which are huge and very ornate. A definite place to see in BA.

We took the a walking tour of the cemetery with “free walking tours”. The cemetery has so much history! We spent several hours walking around the many tombs. I would strongly recommend this cemetery!

I have now visited this cemetery twice, and each time I get lost. There are monuments to many of the great and wealthy of the history of Argentina, and a never-ending array of different designs. Of course the main draw is the tomb of Eva Peron, unassuming compared to many of the others, but elegant in its black marble.

We were here 10 years ago on our own without a guide. Like so many places, a guide is worth their weight in gold. You can spend hours here wandering around as the history, architecture and family information is so interesting and beautiful. We also had Marcelo as our guide as someone recently mentioned a couple of reviews down. He has been here hundreds of times, and of course not only takes you to Eva Perón's mausoleum, but so many others. Keep in mind Eva's resting place is very popular, and is under the name "Duarte" when you are looking for it.

Most famous for being the site of the grave of Eva Peron. We visited with a guide which made for a fascinating tour. It is reputedly contains the greatest (and most eclectic) collection of marble statuary art and stained glass throughout the many tombs. It makes for a fascinating historical visit, A guide or guidebook is a must.
