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.
