One of the world´s great necropolis. It is organised into squares, which are divided by wide, tree-lined avenues flanked by marble mausoleums of different architectural styles. Argentina’s most illustrious sons and daughters (presidents, writers, scientists, artists, etc) are all buried here. Among the most venerated tombs, is that of Eva Duarte, otherwise known as Evita Perón.
