Recoleta Cemetery houses for their eternal rest most of Argentina’s forefathers and outstanding public celebrities as well as politicians.
Its refined architecture invites us to discover its history and hidden stories at the time we marvel out of the superb aesthetic. In many ways this very non traditional - though Traditional in the sense of society traditions- graveyard offers a fabulously achieved synthesis between History and Art.
Having earned a well recognized spot among the most interesting cemeteries of the world, along with those in the UK and France, Recoleta Cemetery beholds culture in its broader sense. Its perfectly planned internal streets lead us into a journey of history, art; while at the same time open the door to tell us the story of the city thru some of its finest citizens. The many mausoleums exhibit variety of sculpture styles that prove in many ways the pass of time as well as the timeless value of highly achieved craftsmanship.
