    Legend says this girl was supposedly entombed while still alive. She “died” on her 19th birthday and was a very beautiful girl.

    Very beautiful graves, amazing, people really cared about the dead you can tell. Too bad I believe in reencarnation:)

    A beautiful and calm place out of hustle & bustle of the city... the picture indicates the approximate location of Evita's tomb on the cementary.

    History abound. Great Argentinian figures are buried here, ornate tombs all around. Good for some reflection, since this is a place of grieving turned into touristic spot.

    Absolutely beautiful cemetery – even more than Père Lachaise or any of the other grand cemeteries of the world.

    The architecture and history is really amazing. Yes it is a graveyard but it is not scary or morose or anything like that. Very beautiful

    Stunning. Spend some time here, there's a lot to see other than Eva Peron's grave.

    Beautiful and massive cemetery. Eva Peron's grave is to the back left from where you enter. When in doubt follow the crowd.

    Interesting concept; some graves are poorly maintained and appear to have become inhabited by the homeless. Quite hard to find Eva Peron: Ask for help.

    Free English tours Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am. You can also take a private tour for only 7 dollars. One of the best tours I had given by a true intellectual who has a strong grasp of history.

    Evita's place is plot 88 and there's a map by the entrance. You'll never find her without it!

    It's interesting to think of a cemetery as a tourist spot. It's sacred. It's personal. It's beautiful. The tombs were so fascinating!

    If you see a crowd in a line, it's because you are very close to the Evita Peron's grave. This place is a open museum, with lots of great sculptures (some scary).

    A beautiful place, honouring & celebrating the lives of many in a magnificent, regal fashion. A must-see is the tomb of Evita, pay tribute to a wonderful woman.

    Consider hiring one of the independent guides at the front of the cemetery. They're really knowledgable and will highlight the most culturally significant graves. Don't just walk around aimlessly.

    An amazing place. 2 hours were not enough if you really get into it. The new, the old, traditional or modern, even Egyptian style.
