Buenos Aires, La Recoleta Cemetery

H. and I visited the most famous tourist attraction in Buenos Aires, the La Recoleta Cemetery. It is located in the Recoleta neighbourhood, and contains the graves of notable people, including Eva Peron, Presidents of Argentina, Nobel Prize winners, the founder of the Argentine Navy, and a granddaughter of Napoleon. It has been often hailed as one of the world’s most beautiful cemeteries. It is chockablock full of magnificent statuary, and equally jammed with tourists. 
It takes hours of walking and quite a few miles to see it all.
