Discover a unique place in the world with an official guide to the Cemetery

This is a comprehensive, walking tour of upscale neighborhood "Recoleta".

We'll visit the famous cemetery (I'm an official guide to the cemetery). During this visit, I'll introduce you to our history, telling you the main events of our country from the colonial times to the present day. Of course we'll visit Eva Perón's grave (better known as "Evita", the "standard bearer of the poor").

Considered an open sky museum, there are just a few places like this in the world. Not only will we find history here, but also art, architecture and much more.

After a deep exploration of the cemetery, we'll visit the famous mansions of "La Recoleta" neighborhood, nowadays transformed into embassies and fancy hotels before finally visiting nice parks and having time to enjoy a drink "al fresco" under the shade of the oldest tree in the city or discovering our Italian heritage by trying our famous "gelato. "
