A who's who of Argentinean bold-faced names rests among Recoleta Cemetery's tombs and mausoleums, from the Alvears and the Dorregos to heavyweight boxer Luis Ángel Firpo. Foreigners come largely for Evita, whose remains returned to Buenos Aires in 1974 after a decades-long detour through Milan and Madrid and now lie in her family's simple crypt. Until recently, her late husband Juan Perón was buried across town at the less regal Chacarita Cemetery, a vast necropolis built during the city's 1871 yellow fever epidemic. Peronist party loyalists have since moved his remains to a grand mausoleum at El General's former home in the rural town of San Vicente.

Open daily 7 am to 5:45 pm.
