What people are saying:

If you are into cemeteries or history, this should be interesting. It was cool to walk through but I don’t think places where people have been laid to rest should be part of any tour. I was here because of a tour group stop. I have been to Arlington Cemetery to pay tribute. I have walked through another popular cemetery in New Orleans. This would be my last visit to any cemetery during my travels. Not my kind of place to visit.

    A map would help!

    I loved seeing all of the beautiful statues and crypts. Apparently there is an app on your phone that will guide you around, but this didn't work for me. I would like to have had a paper map. Took ...

    Extraordinary Cemetery is a Must-see!

    A stay in Buenos Aires would not be complete without a visit to the Recoleta Cemetery. I was so overwhelmed by all different styles of architecture and the many elaborate (and even not so elaborate)...

    Worthwhile

    See Eva Peron's grave quickly and move on to the more beautiful and peaceful parts of the cemetery. Lovely

    A Buenos Aires Highlight

    My partner and I visited Recoleta Cemetery on a Sunday morning in March 2020, just before Covid hit. It's something of an overwhelming experience - rows and rows of elaborate and often overblown mauso...

Additional Information

Introduction

A cemetery for the stars, this graveyard is the final resting place for some of Argentina's most notorious and beloved citizens, including Raúl Alfonsín, Eva Perón, and a number of presidents. First built around a convent and church, the cemetery became part of a wealthy neighborhood after upper-class Argentinians fled to Recoleta during the 1870s yellow fever epidemic. Today, the cemetery contains elaborate mausoleums, statues and tombs - most in good shape, although a few have succumbed to the ravages of time. Tree-lined walkways allow visitors to stroll leisurely through the area.
