So much more than the final resting place of Argentina's heroes and villains, this vast cemetery is an architectural tour de force. More than ninety mausoleums out of the 4,600 built here have been declared national historical monuments. One tomb of particular fascination is Eva Perón's—to this day, fans leave flowers. Aesthetes will have a field day inspecting Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and Baroque-style tombs.
