In the past in this area was the Chakra of the College that the Society of Jesus which was on the outskirts of the city of Buenos Aires towards the middle of the 18th century. That is why it was known as “la chacrita” or “chacarita de los colegiales”. From there they subsequently derived the names of the Buenos Aires neighborhoods of “Chacarita” and “Colegiales”.

What to see in La Chacarita and Colegiales:

One of the biggest tourist attractions of Colegiales is its “Flea Market”, located in Dorrego and Alvarez Thomas streets. A place where you can get antiques of all kinds and restored furniture. A pesar de ser un barrio de casas bajas en los alrededores del mercado también se instalaron diversos locales convirtiendo a la zona en un polo gastronómico y de diseño. Continuing towards the Chacarita neighborhood, we will find its cemetery, the largest in the city. This graveyard does not have the same family as its younger brother (the one in Recoleta), but it is certainly worth a visit.

The Chacarita Cemetery:

With much less glamor than its small neighbor of La Recoleta, this cemetery is the largest in the city of Buenos Aires and in it are great figures of Argentine history and culture such as Aníbal Troilo, Jorge Newbery, Benito Quinquela Martín, Carlos Gardel, Norberto Napolitano (Pappo), Bernardo Houssay, Gilda, Gustavo Cerati and Osvaldo Pugliese, among many others.

The history of this cemetery began in 1887 when the old cemetery of the city was exceeded in its capacity and works began in the chacarita known in those years as Cemetery of the West. In the first years there was even a Funeral Tram, which was used to reach the cemetery, and the so-called Funeral Station was inaugurated at the intersection of Bermejo streets (now Jean Jaurès) and Corrientes Avenue, where the coffins were received.

Next to the Chacarita cemetery are the British and German cemeteries. Dedicated to immigrants and their descendants from the European communities of Buenos Aires. Among the most famous “inhabitants” of this cemetery is the remains of Hans Langsdorff, commander of the battleship Graf Spee of Nazi Germany.
