The Recoleta graveyard is one of Buenos Aires places to visit. Many of the people buried here were important to the history of Argentina, like Eva Perón – Evita, and some presidents like Raúl Alfonsin. Some of the names in this graveyard are the names of main avenues in the city.
There are 4,691 vaults above ground where 94 of them have been declared National Historic Monuments.
Many of the graves are decorated with massive sculptures from heroic motives to humble ones.
I have chosen just a few to show here.
The Recoleta neighbourhood is known for its French architecture, museums and art exhibits.
