Lovely setting and most interesting with some ghoulish touches. Eva Duarte Perron is memorialized here.

Fascinating, nothing like anything I've ever seen. Some mausoleums are a little bit creepy as you can see the coffins.

The most gorgeous cemetery I have ever visited! The catacombs of Eva Perón are a must see among other famous people who are there! It's affluent characteristics give this cemetery a place where I would love to rest!

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
