Recoleta Cemetery

Buenos Aires, Argentina

One of the most popular attractions in Buenos Aires is Recoleta Cemetery. The cemetery dates back to the early 18th century, and it contains nearly 5,000 vaults. Architectural features abound at the Recoleta Cemetery, including countless statues, Doric columns and mausoleums. What makes the cemetery so fascinating, however, is who is laid to rest there. Some of the tombs in Recoleta belong to people like Eva Peron, Armando Bo, José Figueroa Alcorta and virtually every Argentinian of political or cultural note from the past two centuries.
