Cemiterio de Recoleta, Buenos Aires

4.1
Admire the 4,691 elaborate and varied vaults of Cemiterio de Recoleta. The mausoleums display a wide array of architectural styles, sculptures, and motifs, from Baroque to Art Deco, many constructed from materials imported from Paris and Milan. The cemetery serves as the final resting place for artists, actors, writers, and Nobel Prize winners, 19 Argentine presidents, and the beloved icon Eva Perón. Although some tombs are protected by the government, parts of the cemetery have fallen into disrepair. While the cemetery can be explored without a guide, having someone to recount the stories behind the different mausoleums can greatly enrich your trip. A visit to Cemiterio de Recoleta represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Buenos Aires travel route planner to plot your vacation.
