Recoleta Cemetary

Family Wedding Photo on outside of crypt in Buenos Aires

The Recoleta Cemetery is located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It contains the graves of notable people, including Eva Peron, presidents of Argentina, Nobel Prize winners, the founder of the Argentine Navy, and a granddaughter of Napoleon. In 2011, the BBC hailed it as one of the world’s best cemeteries, and in 2013, CNN listed it among the 10 most beautiful cemeteries in the world.

The cemetery was built around the church and convent of the Order of the Recoletas Monks.

Not that any of us are rushing to get in….the structures are haunting and beautiful. Many contain family photos and momentos on the outside.

Have you visited this cemetery? I loved the structures with the old family photos…..

Until next our internet works…..
