Cementerio de la Recoleta
Cementerio de la Recoleta was a church graveyard until 1882 when the Governor opened it to the general public and renamed it Cemetery of the North. Small, and situated on the city's most valuable land, its importance resides in the many illustrious people that rest here. One of the most visited tombstones is Eva Peron's. The majority of materials used in the construction of tombs between 1880 and 1930 were imported from Paris and Milan, and important sculptural works grace many of the tombs. Every Sunday there are free guided visits at 2:30pm.
The Recoleta Cementery is a sight not to be missed. It is a very beautiful and peaceful place of repose. Eva Peron is buried there and is the most visited tomb at the cementary. However, do not miss the chapel next door and the old monks quaters (for a minor extra charge) Make sure to visit the many shops and restaurants nearby. During weekends there is also a crafts fair around the Recoleta.
The cemetary is awesome. It's a virtual who's who of Argentine history. You have Evita (not so well marked), you have Sarmiento, the unknown soldiers from the war with Paraguay, Juan Manuel de Rosas and other evil leaders, tons of Presidents...you will basically find all the street names in Buenos Aires in here. If you're a history buff or know Argentine history, it's amazing. Otherwise, it's still pretty cool.
