This was a pretty cool place to walk around (albeit a macabre walk). Evita's resting place is here as well (just follow the crowd).

Fascinating! Great, atmospheric place to spend a half-day. This place is huge, ornate, historical, beautiful...and creepy! Amazing how much effort was put into putting up dead people. An absolutely unique place that is surely a must-see when in Buenos Aires.

Spent an interesting few hours here, searching for Evita and looking at the range of tombs and memorials. Quite moving to read some of the memorials.

The mausoleums are incredible to see. Always a line of people at Eva Peron's grave. I wasn't sure why my tour guide was taking us to a cemetery, but was amazing to see the mausoleums. Allow at least an hour.

To be honest it is just a normal cemetery. Not that much beautiful as the people use to say. My personal point of view.

Recoleta is a nice area to hang around in, nice parks nearby. Cemetery is big - Eva Peron grave is one place to see but its nice to walk around the whole thing - get lost in the graves and enjoy Recoleta!

When there you can buy a pamphlet that gives a map with all you need to visit. You don't really need a guide. I had a private chauffer taxi that drove us around for the day. We paid him 150 dollars. Happy to give you his... More

You can just show up and go around on your own, or go on the days that English tours are provided free of charge. I think it was on Tuesdays at 11 am., or you can hire a guide. We really didn't need a guide at all. We... More
