Recoleta Cemetery (Cemiterio de Recoleta) Tours

star-4.5
12 Reviews
Recoleta Cemetery (Cemiterio de Recoleta)
While it may seem odd that one of Buenos Aires’ principal attractions is a cemetery, this is no ordinary graveyard. Recoleta Cemetery (Cemiterio de Recoleta) is one of the world’s most exquisite necropolises—home to more than 6,400 tombs, mausoleums, and monuments laid out in formal tree-lined avenues, including the grave of Eva Perón (Evita).

The Basics
This labyrinthine city of the dead is often at the top of visitors’ must-see lists when spending time in the Argentinean capital. You’d be hard-pressed to find a city sightseeing tour that doesn’t make a stop here. While it’s easy enough to visit independently, it’s well worth exploring the grounds with a guide, who can regale you with stories of the various tombs and monuments. To learn more about the city’s history through the lens of those interred in the cemetery, consider taking a themed tour about Evita or Argentina’s Dirty War history. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • A visit to Recoleta Cemetery (Cemiterio de Recoleta) is a must for first-time visitors to Buenos Aires.
  • Remember to keep your voice down and be mindful of where you step in this burial ground.
  • The cemetery is wheelchair-accessible via a side door; inquire at the main entrance if you need assistance.
  • Pick up a map at the entrance to find significant sites within the cemetery more easily. 

How to Get There
Recoleta Cemetery (Cemiterio de Recoleta) is located in the upscale Recoleta neighborhood, within easy walking distance of many top attractions. To get there by public transportation, take the subway to Retiro or Callao.

When to Get There
The cemetery is open daily from 8am to 6pm, with free tours in English on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Notable Graves
While Evita is certainly the most famous figure laid to rest in Recoleta Cemetery, there are a few other notable individuals to keep an eye out for. The black stone mausoleum of the Paz family is where the former owners of the newspaper La Prensa are buried. The mausoleum of Liliana Crociati, a young woman who died on her honeymoon, features a bronze statue of her in her wedding dress with her pet dog. It is believed that Rufina Cambaceres was accidentally enclosed alive in her coffin, and her tomb now reflects her family’s immense grief.
Address: Azcuénaga, Buenos Aires, Recoleta, Argentina
