The history of the Recoleta Cemetery:

The history of the Recoleta Cemetery dates back to 1822, when the first public cemetery of the city was inaugurated, in the place where the churchyard of the Pilar Church was, belonging to the Recoleta monks, who were the ones who gave it the Name to the neighborhood.

During the 1870s, when a yellow fever epidemic hit the city, many upper-class Buenos Aires left the neighborhoods of San Telmo and Montserrat and moved to the northern part of the city, to Recoleta. Upon becoming an upper-class neighborhood, the cemetery became the last rest of the most prestigious and powerful families in Buenos Aires.

Eva Peron, your most illustrious resident:

There are many personalities that inhabit this necropolis, among military, large, Argentine aristocratic families, writers, scientists, artists, politicians and even seven presidents (Nicolás Avellaneda, Sarmiento, Hipólito Yrigoyen, Miter, Roca, Illia and Alfonsín). But without a doubt, the one who stands out and attracts tourists is Eva Duarte de Perón, who has been resting in the family vault of the Duarte family since 1976.

For many years Evita shared a resting place with her husband General Perón, but he was transferred a couple of years ago to his own mausoleum in his private villa in San Vicente. It has also been proposed to move Eva Perón’s body to this mausoleum, but due to the hectic history behind his body, it has been decided to let him rest in La Recoleta.
