Often the tombs pertain to important families, and several family members occupy the same vault. Sarmiento the president, Hernandez the writer and Firpo the boxer are all there. Eva Peron (1919 – 1952), in death, is still the people’s favorite, even if her tomb, when you eventually find it, is underwhelming. This is the most expensive real estate in Buenos... More

You have to go but not any different to many othper mausoleums except this one has flowers left. You will be among a stream of visitors to see it and be moved on quickly by the crowd.

Ricoleta and the Eva Peron Museum were wonderful. the architecture of Ricoleta is beautiful. The history of the many of the mausoleums was interesting and the only negative was that we had not planned to spend more time in Ricoleta. Our guide was great and her English excellent. This is a must see if you are in BsAs.

(May 2015) The cemetery overall is spectacular, and the Duarte's family's tomb is neatly tucked away. Nothing too ostentatious - no golden angels or tall ceilings. That's why I recommend getting help finding this place. But when you get there, it is amazing to think of the history and the meaning of this particular woman in this special tomb.

Went to see Eva Perone's tomb but was pleasantly surprised by how amazing the entire cemetery was. So many cool corners to explore. The rain and it being a Sunday seemed to keep the large groups away, so there was only a handful of people at the tomb. Yes, wait in the line to take your pictures and then move... More

We completed the obligatory visit to the Tomb of Eva Peron in Ricoleta cemetry Interesting to note she is buried under the name Duarte de Peron (Her maiden name). It is easier to find than Jim Morrison in Pere Lachaise.

In the Ricoleta cemetery having been transferred back to Argentina from Italy the body is in the Peron family tomb which has lots of plaques donated by different organisations . Quite small and no where near as elaborate as other tombs it is interesting but a quick photo and time to move on - lots of tourists so wait your... More

Take the free tour in English or other languages (only certain days) very informative and creepy. The shiny black mausoleum is named the Duarte family and Evita is buried under the name Duarte de Peron. Also see the feral cats wanderig the cemetry as all seem to have problems such as one eye, three legs or look very thin! One... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this 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 also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
