Together with Pere Lachaise in Paris and Di Staglieno in Genoa, Italy, this is one of the most astonishing burial grounds in the world.

Evita Tour

 
images/special-interest-historical-eva.jpg Although Eva Peron has been called the most powerful Latin American woman of her time, many people in North America and Europe had never heard of her until the musical was performed.

From her upbringing as a humble country girl, to the leader of the Argentinean masses, you will be shown the real story of Eva Peron.

Some of the venues that we visit are: CGT ( Main labor Union office ), Luna Park, Peron´s residence, Duarte´s House, Evita´s Museum and the Recoleta Cemetery.
