Buenos Aires – Cemetery

Our tour ended at the La Recoleta Cemetery which contains over 4,000 vaults. The cemetery is built like a city in that it is contains rows of vaults and tree lined walk ways. It contains some graves of Argentina’s notable people including a past president. Most of the vaults were very well taken care of but some could use a lot of work. The cemetery is often named one of the best in the world and it was definitely worth seeing. A lot of the material that was used in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s were materials from Italy and France.
