Quite a different experience and much larger than expected. A large map was available at the entrance but it would be much handier to use one in your own hands. A worthwhile visit even though we struggled to find the entrance at first.

It's a overcrowded cemetary that's all. The tombs are packed together along narrow walkways. If you really want to visit it dip your head in from the outside and take a photo. It looks no different from the inside. Much like most of buenos aires...More

Wow - what a surprise. We had no idea that a cemetry could be so impressive. For us, very unusual seeing the caskets with many sites in rack and ruin. Many were beautifully kept and still in use. Allow plenty of time to wander through.

Very similar to New Orleans, however some of the crypts are not as well maintained and you can see the casket(s) in side. Also the burial site of Eva Peron if that's something that interests you.

The place where Eva Peron is resting is of course the most famous, but there are many other important people buried here. The park outside is nice and the is a handcraft market in it that's worth the visit!

We went with a cruise tour group, but had no problem seeing the Duarte (Eva Peron) tomb. There are many beautiful statues all around, and mausoleums both maintained and decrepit.

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the

neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll

Take the line H (yellow one) to Las Heras. From there it is a short walk to the cementery. For further information about public transportation download the app ‘Como Llego’, it’s very helpful.
