About this blog

La Recoleta is a world-famous cemetery, mostly because Eva Peron is buried here and her tomb receives fresh flowers every day. As the brochure says, La Recoleta has become a model for cemeteries because of its extravagance and artistic decoration. It looks like a mini-city as you wander around looking at all the marvelous sculpture, the plaques put up in memory of the dead by their loved ones, the endless architectural detail. Here, as elsewhere in Argentina, you can't ignore the sky. During my visit, the cloudy sky turned to bright blue and I could not help noticing its effect on the cemetery landscape.
