Cementerio de la Recoleta, Buenos Aires

History of the cemetery

Following the epidemic of yellow fever in the 1870s, many upper-class neighbourhoods fled San Telmo and moved to Recoleta.

Therefore it became a graveyard for the elite – and many famous personalities, military heroes and presidents were buried here.

Entry is free and the cemetery is open Monday-Sunday. See more things to do in Argentina and don’f forget to follow us on Twitter for more updates.
