Come join us and marvel at the Recoleta Cemetery, the most visited place in Argentina and one of the most beautiful in the world, where you’ll be able to see the mausoleums of some of the most famous individuals who called Argentina their home, including the mausoleum of Evita Perón.

On our Recoleta Cemetery Tour you will not only stroll through the graves of many distinguished Argentinians but also understand one simple and undeniable truth: that death is inevitable. But just because it’s unavoidable it doesn’t mean it has to be grim and dull. By strolling down the magnificent vaults, mausoleums, and sculptures that decorate this old monument to the dead, you will grasp the true essence of the city and its most illustrious inhabitants.

Just like the Stoic principle “Memento Mori” (Latin: ‘remember that you must die) affirms, the Recoleta Cemetery will guarantee to astound its beholders with its beautiful marble stones, and streets that were not built for usual traffic, but rather for the silent contemplation of death and of course, the commemoration of life.

A stroll in the cemetery has never been so interesting!

Emanuela and me liked very much visiting Retiro and Recoleta with Gonzalo. He has enthusiasm and simplicity, knowledge without pretence, bringing us from streets and squares into the history and the life of these two Baires’ neighboroods. Our best compliments too Gonzalo. Paolo.
