Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires, Argentina

WHAT A FABULOUS PLACE. Not what you’d expect of a cemetery.

The cemetery has impressive statues and crypts that hold the remains of Buenos Aires’ Elite: past presidents, military heroes, influential politicians and of course everybody’s favourite- the rich&the famous 😉 Evita is even buried here! (check her out if you don’t know who she is-Madonna played her in the movie which won a Golden Globe but Argentinians dont like the movie: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eva_Per%C3%B3n)

The cemetery met my required creep factor by the amount of perfect spider webs located on the tombs. It also had the creep factor induced through the tombs that have not been well kept, and over the years, dust has accumulated, doors are broken, or off hinges, and flowers are long wilted.
