My favorite mausoleum at the Recoleta Cemetary

One of the most popular things to do in Buenos Aires, the Recoleta cemetery is where the most influential Argentinian figures rest in peace.  Many of the mausoleums in the cemetery are intricately detailed with marble statues through a wide rane of architectural styles.  The most prominent figures buried here are Eva Peron and Raul Alfonsin, the first democratically appointed president of Argentina.  This is one of my favorite mausoleums in the cemetery.  The contrast of black stone and white statues provides an aesthetically pleasing view that stands out as you walk through the cemetery and the intricate work on the actual statues themselves is very impressive.  Don’t forget to check out our top 5 section for more things to do in Buenos Aires and more Argentina attractions.
