Aside from being the final resting place of many famous Argentineans, this vast cemetery is an architectural tour de force. This cemetery opened in 1822, when Recoleta was the the city’s northernmost neighborhood. Of the 4,600 mausoleums, more than 90 have been declared national historic monuments. Architectural styles include Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and Baroque. One tomb of fascination is Eva Perón’s—to this day, fans leave flowers at her rather modest vault. Also look out for Egyptian pyramids, cenotaphs and any number of angels in this glamorous field of death.
