La Recoleta Cemetery

Located in the heart of Recoletta barrio, this is a cemetery containing the graves of famous Argentinians, including Eva Peron, Argentinian Presidents and Nobel Prize winners. In 2011, BBC called it one of the best cemeteries and in 2013 CNN proclaimed it among the 10 most beautiful cemeteries in the world. The cemetery was founded in 1822 when the monks of the Order of Recoletas arrived and built a graveyard around its convent and church.
