La recoleta cemetery

Located in the heart of Recoleta neighborhood of stately, this impressive city of the dead (famous, of course) is one of the most fascinating places in Buenos Aries. The entire cemetery was like a structure of streets, avenues, squares even! It is comprised of beautiful marble statues, stately crypts, and even a few open coffins. Presidents, actors, military, rich people ... Evita's tomb is, of course, the most visited. Although maps are given out to show the entrance to the cemetery, you will easily find it. Just like when she was alive, she is still always surrounded by flashing lights! Tip: better to go to the cemetery in the morning because it closes pretty early, at 6 in the afternoon. You may be in this cemetery for hours, so it is much better to go early. Admission is free.

I find it curious now go into the cemetery of La Recoleta with my camera as a child when I gave the site a lot scared. The time has passed for me but also for this incredible corner of Buenos Aires, as unique in the world that has been declared a National Historic Museum. The Recoleta Cemetery was opened in 1822, but in 1880 its abandonment was such that underwent major modifications. Most spectacular was built statues and sculptures from this period. The site has a very particular beauty and an amazing location. Located in one of the best areas of Buenos Aires, occupies 4 blocks. In that space is nothing less than 6000 graves in perpetuity, and over 70 vaults that have declared a National Historic Landmark. The visit to the cemetery is a unique experience, beyond that you are a foreigner and do not know the famous people who are buried there. The site is part of the culture of the locals, and it's amazing to take pictures, both with sky blue or violet storm hovering over Buenos Aires.

Me resulta curioso hoy en día adentrarme en el cementerio de La Recoleta con mi cámara de fotos cuando siendo una niña el sitio me daba muchísimo miedo. El tiempo ha pasado para mí, pero también para este rincón increíble de Buenos Aires, tan único en el mundo que ha sido declarado Museo Histórico Nacional.
El cementerio de La Recoleta fue inaugurado en 1822, aunque en 1880 su abandono era tal que sufrió grandes modificaciones. La mayor parte de sus espectaculares estatuas y esculturas fue construida a partir de esa época. El sitio tiene una belleza muy particular y un emplazamiento asombroso. Ubicado en una de las mejores zonas de Buenos Aires, ocupa 4 manzanas. En ese espacio hay nada menos que 6000 sepulcros a perpetuidad, y más de 70 bóvedas que han declaradas Monumento Histórico Nacional.
La visita al cementerio es una experiencia única, más allá de que seas extranjero y no conozcas los personajes ilustres que están enterrados allí. El sitio forma parte de la cultura de los porteños, y es una pasada para sacar fotos, tanto con el cielo azul o con una tormenta violácea cerniéndose sobre Buenos Aires.

Loved the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires, first park, the Plaza Francia full of craft stalls, musicians playing in the parks, groups of people sitting on the grass drinking mate ... After the monumental, the elegance of the neighborhood, in contrast to other neighborhoods (perhaps not with the charm of the other), Dogwalker walking 20 dogs together .... And suddenly, peace, tranquility and majesty behind walls of the Recoleta cemetery. As it is in the most elegant neighborhood of Buenos Aires, became the graveyard of the wealthy and important, and it shows in the graves in the cemetery. It's almost a walk through history and art, as many of the sculptures that fill, are impressive. The tomb of Evita Peron, then note where it is, pq is full of tourists. Is 200 meters from the entrance, and is not marked, but I say that you will see soon. I think the President Peron is buried there, but she did, in the Duarte family pateón. It's always crowded, but what is most surprising is that there are people who spend the time there, hows it was a park, either playing chess in the silence it offers, drinking mate sitting on a bench or feeding cats living in it. If you go to Buenos Aires, I think is a must, as it is one of the most famous cemeteries in the world.

Me encantó el barrio de la Recoleta de Buenos Aires, por un lado parques, la plaza francia llena de puestecitos de artesanía, músicos tocando en los parques, grupos de gente sentados en el césped tomando mate... Luego la monumentalidad, la elegancia del barrio, en contraste con otros barrios (quizás no con el encanto de los otros), paseaperros paseando a 20 perros juntos....Y de repente, la paz, la tranquilidad y la majestuosidad detrás de los muros del cementerio de la Recoleta.
Como está en el barrio más elegante de Buenos Aires, se convirtió en el cementerio de gente rica e importante, y eso se nota en las tumbas, en los panteones. Es un paseo casi por la historia y por el arte, ya que muchas de las esculturas que lo llenan, son impresionantes.
La tumba de Evita Perón, se nota en seguida dónde está, pq está llena de turistas. Dista 200 m de la entrada, y no está señalizado, pero ya os digo que la veréis en seguida.
Creo que el Presidente Perón no está enterrado allí, pero ella sí, en el pateón de la familia Duarte.
Está siempre lleno de gente, pero lo que más sorprende es que hay gente que pasa allí el rato, comos si fuera un parque, ya sea jugando al ajedrez en medio del silencio que ofrece, tomando mate sentados en un banco o dando de comer a los gatos que viven en él.
Si vais a Buenos Aires, creo que es de visita obligada, ya que es uno de los cementerios más famosos del mundo.

Story time

What attracts all visitors to the Recoleta cemetery, she: a small tomb located in a narrow alle and bears the simple inscription on the pediment "Duarte Family". Simple but flowers all year round, because it is yet the Maria Eva Duarte rests Peron, known as Evita, one of the most emblematic figures in the history of Argentina. Before being buried in the family vault, the dpouille of her who was the wife of President Juan Peron and D. idol opens class enjoyed a incredible journey from the time of his death in 1952, his abduction and his exhumation in Italy in 1971, before being finally made Peron in Argentina back in 1974.

Moment d'histoire

Ce qui attire tous les visiteurs au cimetière de la Recoleta, c'est elle : une petite tombe située dans une allée étroite et qui porte au fronton la simple inscription "Famille Duarte". Simple mais fleurie toute l'année, car c'est pourtant là que repose Maria Eva Duarte de Peron, dite Evita, une des figures les plus emblématiques de l'histoire de l'Argentine. Avant d'être enterrée dans le caveau familial, la dépouille de celle qui fut la femme du président Juan D. Peron et l'idole de la classe ouvrière connut un parcours rocambolesque entre le moment de sa mort en 1952, son enlèvement et son exhumation en Italie en 1971, avant d'être finalement rendu à l'Argentine au retour de Peron en 1974.

Si le quartier Recoleta est devenu l'un des endroits branchés de Buenos Aires, il est connu avant tout pour son cimetière, le 2e plus grand du monde, inauguré en 1822 par le gouverneur de l'époque, Martin Rodriguez, et son chef de gouvernement, Bernardino Rivadavia. En se promenant, le visiteur passe devant des statues impressionnantes qui surplombent les mausolées, des monuments funéraires en marbre, et des vitraux constituant de véritables œuvres d'art. Les cryptes renferment les dépouilles des personnages le plus important de la ville : présidents, héros militaires, politiciens influents, célébrités locales et riches inconnus.

Incredibly quiet

A monumental cemetery is always a great charm. What Recoleta is absolutely a place not to be missed when visiting the capital, it's worth it. The entrada is of course free of charge and you can buy a map from a lady who works for the association that takes care of the maintenance of the cemetery. The main character is undoubtedly Eva Duarte Peron, Evita. You can indicate many other historical figures, however, are only known in Argentina (presidents, soldiers, artists ..). Visit the cemetery for good requires at least an hour. It's not huge, but it's really full of details to discover: empty tombs, statues of angels and mausoleums huge .. Do not miss the part at the bottom of the cemetery (there is only an entry) with fewer celebrities but more statues and decorations.

Il fascino del silenzio

Un cimitero monumentale ha sempre un suo grande fascino. Quello della Recoleta è assolutamente un luogo da non perdere quando si visita la capitale, ne vale la pena. L'entrada è naturalmente gratuita e potete comprare una cartina da una signora che lavora per l'associazione che si occupa della manutenzione del cimitero.

Il personaggio principale è senza dubbio Eva Duarte Perón, Evita. Vi potranno indicare molte altre figure storiche che tuttavia sono conosciute solo in Argentina (presidenti, soldati, artisti..). Visitare il cimitero per bene richiede almeno un'ora. Non è enorme, ma è veramente pieno di dettagli da scoprire: tombe vuote, statue angeliche, mausolei enormi.. Da non perdere assolutamente la parte al fondo del cimitero (c'è solo un'entrata) con meno personaggi celebri ma più statue e decorazioni.

A visit as a kind of argentina history

Visit the old Recoleta Cemetery is one of the most desirable of Buenos Aires. It always amazes me that this cemetery, located in one of the most elegant and traditional of the city, is a kind of public garden surrounded by restaurants, cafes and nightclubs. I love walking through the halls and go reviewing the names of the most illustrious families of Argentina. It's almost like a history lesson. If many of them to match those in the streets who often transit. The cemetery is very old and retains the air of the colonial era. It also gives testimony to the beautiful church of Our Lady of Pilar, located right next door. I usually get the map that I delivered to the entrance. However, I prefer playing to lose by wooded trails. The cemetery is of great historical and artistic value. Located in the heart of La Recoleta, extending over nearly five acres filled with majestic mausoleums of patrician families. La Recoleta is a lot like the great cemeteries of the world is a much visited by tourists. I saw the same thing in Paris at the Père Lachaise. I was surprised to hear about so many foreign languages. I even thought I was the only Spanish-speaking. Luckily a group of Mexicans me back to reality, wondering the mausoleum of Eva Duarte. If you want to enjoy the best of the visit, I recommend doing the tour with a guide. The stories are entertaining, it is the fastest route and hear interesting facts about famous people from Argentina to rest there. There Argentine heroes, musicians, writers, presidents, Nobel laureates and artists. I mention here some of the celebrities who rest in La Recoleta? Are the writers José Hernández, Miguel Cane and Victoria Ocampo, boxer Luis Angel Firpo, filmmaker Armando Bo, presidents Domingo F. Sarmiento, Hipólito Irigoyen, Arturo Ilia and Raul Alfonsin. And the personalities continue. The most famous cemetery is, without doubt, that of Eva Duarte, Evita, Eva Peron. Is that arouse more curiosity in visitors. I usually say that all roads lead to La Recoleta that point. The monument is relatively easy to locate, as it is always surrounded by people and decorated with fresh flowers. I confess that the first time I saw him I was disappointed. It is so easy for a person surrounded by so popular, I think I expected something else. In Recoleta is a large number of monuments scattered belonging to strangers, even strangers. Some mausoleums are impressive, others are ruined by the passing years. A highly recommended visit.

Una visita como una clase de historia argentina

La visita al antiguo Cementerio de La Recoleta es una de las más recomendables de Buenos Aires.
Siempre me sorprende que este cementerio, ubicado en uno de los barrios más elegantes y tradicionales de la ciudad, sea una especie de jardín público rodeado de restaurants, cafeterías y discotecas. Me encanta caminar por los corredores e ir repasando los apellidos de las familias más ilustres de Argentina. Es casi como una lección de historia. Si hasta muchos de ellos coinciden con los de las calles que, a menudo, transito.

El cementerio es muy antiguo y conserva los aires de la época colonial. Da también testimonio de ello la hermosa iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Pilar, ubicada justo al lado.

Acostumbro recibir el mapa que me entregan a la entrada. Sin embargo, prefiero jugar a perderme por los senderos arbolados. El cementerio tiene gran valor histórico y artístico. Ubicado en el corazón de La Recoleta, se extiende sobre casi cinco hectáreas colmadas de imponentes mausoleos de familias patricias.

La Recoleta se parece mucho a los grandes cementerios del mundo: es un lugar muy visitado por el turismo. Vi lo mismo en París, en el cementerio de Père Lachaise. Me sorprendió escuchar hablar tantos idiomas extranjeros. Hasta llegué a pensar que era el único hispano parlante. Por suerte un grupo de mejicanos me devolvió a la realidad, preguntándome por el mausoleo de Eva Duarte.

Si desean disfrutar mejor de la visita, recomiendo hacer el tour con un guía. Los relatos son amenos, se hace el recorrido más rápido y se escuchan datos interesantes sobre los personajes famosos de Argentina que ahí descansan. Hay próceres argentinos, músicos, escritores, presidentes, premios Nobel y artistas.

Les menciono aquí algunos de los personajes célebres que descansan en La Recoleta? Están los escritores José Hernández, Miguel Cané y Victoria Ocampo, el boxeador Luis Angel Firpo, el cineasta Armando Bó, los presidentes Domingo F. Sarmiento, Hipólito Irigoyen, Arturo Ilía y Raúl Alfonsín. Y las personalidades siguen.

El panteón más famoso es, sin lugar a dudas, el de Eva Duarte, Evita, Eva Perón. Es el que despierta más curiosidad en los visitantes. Yo suelo decir que todos los caminos de La Recoleta conducen a ese punto. El monumento es relativamente fácil de ubicar, ya que se encuentra siempre rodeado de gente y decorado con flores frescas. Confieso que la primera vez que lo vi me decepcionó. Es tan sencillo para una persona rodeada de tanta popularidad, que creo que esperaba otra cosa.

En La Recoleta hay un gran número de monumentos dispersos que pertenecen a personas desconocidas, incluso a extranjeros. Algunos mausoleos son impresionantes, otros son ruinosos por el paso de los años.

Una visita muy recomendable.

The emblematic grave of eva duarte de pern

In the Cementerio de la Recoleta one of the attractions listed in the guides more and more people want to know is the tomb of Eva Duarte de Pern. This woman was transformed into a key figure in Argentina's history, and after his early death was buried in the Cemetery of Recoleta, the exclusive ms where lie the greatest figures of the country. Eva lies in the Duarte family home within the Cemetery. This is a bit ironic since most prestigious families, of which Eva in her life wanted to distance, also lie all. It is a discrete vault in the cemetery, with black marble walls with a sign indicating that corresponds to the Duarte family. There are always tourists taking pictures of the front and a pair of flowers hang from the door. Worth happen to see!

La emblemática tumba de eva duarte de perón

En el Cementerio de la Recoleta una de las atracciones que más aparece en las guías y que más gente quiere conocer es la tumba de Eva Duarte de Perón. Esta mujer se transformó en un a figura clave de la historia argentina, y tras su muerte joven fue enterrada en el Cementerio de la Recoleta, el más exclusivo donde descansan las mayores figuras del país. Eva yace en la casa familiar Duarte dentro del Cementerio. Esto es un poco irónico ya que las más prestigiosas familias, de las que Eva en su vida quiso distanciarse, también descansan allí. Se trata de una bóveda discreta dentro del cementerio, con paredes negras de mármol con un cartel que indica que corresponde a la familia Duarte. Siempre hay turistas sacando fotos de la fachada y un par de flores cuelgan de la puerta. Vale la pena pasar a ver!

Aquí la gente mantiene los mausoleos más impresionantes que he visto, las historias de esos pequeños monumentos que se convirtieron en tumbas alcanzan detalles como guerras entre jefes mediáticos, políticos, héroes de guerra, controversia, historias de amor no correspondido, mitos y leyendas del Sur de América.

Brilliantly macabre!

The Recoleta cemetery holds the bodies of people important to the Argentines. One Evita Pern, wife of Juan Domingo Pern, who was a populist president of Argentina. Evita who started with the idea of ​​first lady renamed, since, in addition to first lady, was an actress and singer. However, despite being a cemetery, also home to a great historical contents.

The cemetery is a little Recoletta the Argentine equivalent of Père Lachaise in Paris: this is where the personalities are buried in the country. The most famous is probably Evita, whose family vault is perpetually surrounded by tourists. Upon entering the cemetery, it is above all impressed by the ambient excess: it is a bit of a competition who has the biggest ... grave! But behind the monumental tombs of the generals and other politicians, we pass in the aisles where the rich and well maintained family tombs interspersed with crumbling tombs that leave the coffins appear to all comers.

Le cimetière de la Recoletta est un peu l'équivalent argentin du père Lachaise à Paris : c'est le lieu où se font inhumer les personnalités du pays. La plus fameuse est sans doute Evita, dont le caveau familial est perpétuellement entouré de touristes.
En entrant dans le cimetière, on est avant tout impressionné par la démesure ambiante : c'est un peu un concours de celui qui aura la plus grosse... tombe !
Mais derrière les tombes monumentales des généraux et autres hommes politiques, on passe dans des allées où les riches et bien entretenus caveaux familiaux alternent avec des sépultures délabrées qui laissent apparaitre les cercueils au tout venant.
