Hi all. Today I am doing something a little different with my ‘Through My Lens” segment. Yesterday’s post talked about cemeteries as places to go and visit when you’re travelling, and I talked about some of the ones I have visited. Today I thought I’d share images from Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires, which I visited four years back now.
It is the cemetery where Eva Peron rests, and as such is an important place for Argentinians. And what that means is that it sees more visitors than other cemeteries might I guess. Anyways, it’s a very beautiful cemetery. Lots of narrow passageways and the like. It’s the sort of place which, if it wasn’t a cemetery, I might say is ‘fun’ to explore.
Thanks for popping by today – May the Journey Never End!

Thanks for the memories. By far the most interesting cemetery I’ve ever visited. We went on a Recoleta Cemetery walking tour and our guide captivated us with crazy stories about some of the people who rest there, including Eva Peron’s unbelievable journey to Recoleta. If you’re interested, I blogged about it: https://writesofpassage.me/2018/09/08/tales-from-the-graveyard-buenos-aires-recoleta-cemetery/
thanks for sharing. I will have a good read later today when I’m able to – ive brought up the page.
Reminds me of cemeteries in New Orleans. I’d check out this cemetery if I go back to Buenos Aires.
I’ve never seen a cemetery like this before, how beautiful.
Thanks for stopping by
I love a good cemetery and oh, does this look like a good one. The residents of the high rises in the background must have stunning views of the place.
Yes I imagine they must! Unique view indeed!
This is not a cemetery, it’s a city! Very impressive. I am not really a cemetery sightseeing type of person as I am always conflicted. You go like wow when you see beautiful graves, but they are graves after all.
True but something very … Unique.
