    Recoleta Cemetery

    by lars_m Updated Feb 10, 2004

    A fun thing to do is walk around the Recolata Cemetery and see all the gaudy mausoleums. Some of which are like mini condominiums. This is a cemetary you can only get into alive.

    See the grave of Evita , on the Recolleta graveyard.
    The grave is not that special, but it is history.

    The Recoleta cemetery is inhabited by hundreds of feral cats, adding to the surrealistic atmosphere...

    This cemetery is a pleasant place for an afternoon walk. If you are fond of famous people and Argentinian history you will find many having their eternal rest here. But if that is not your cup of tea (not really mine either...) it is still worth your while! its like an island in the middle of this big city where you can just stroll in the silence and remember that rushing and stressing just brings us faster to one place... the cemetery :-)
