"Recoleta Cemetry" Recoleta Cemetery - Cementerio de la Recoleta Tip by lkdahl

  Famila Duarte Tomb
by lkdahl

The Recoleta cemetry the burial place for some of the richest and most powerfull families of Argentina. The tombs are very extravegent. As I wondered through the cemetry I wondered how much money has and is being spent to be entombed here.

As you enter the tomb you will see a map of the cemetry with locations of the most important tombs. Many of these tombs have names you may have seen as street names. The most visited and famous tomb is that of the Familia Duarte. Here Evita is buried and if you stay and watch long enough, you will see people paying homage by kissing the tomb.

Visitin the cemetry is free.
