Recoleta Cemetery 2.5 rating


An elegant last resting place for eminent residents. The elaborate tombs were built above ground because the bodies would float to the surface in the marshy land. Home to Eva Peron and other dignitaries. Tombs that have fallen into disrepair are often not maintained, so be prepared a few coffins! Well worth a visit.
