This tomb is the busiest and the one attracts the most of the tourists. It is located inside of Recoleta Cemetery. You can easily find it because always there are flowers and it is surrounded by a lot of tourist.

Worth the visit to see a historic cemetery in Buenos Aires. Finding Eva's final resting place is easy, just follow the crowds/tourists. Considered one of the worlds most notable cemeteries it houses the remains of many notable people, Presidents and even Napoleons granddaughter (per Wikipedia).

Eva Peron's tomb is a good thing to see so you can tell your family and friends you saw it. But the Recoleta Cemetery is much more beautiful than Peron's tomb is and you should plan your visit around the whole place. Truly.

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

Walking through this cemetery will give you an insight into an Argentine custom of elaborate burials. View Evita's tomb then visit the memorial to her elsewhere.

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

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
