CEMENTARIO DE LA RECOLETA











Came to check it out while on tour in Buenos Aires, impressive!
"Cementerio DE LA RECOLETA For the living and dead alike, Recoleta is Buenos Aires’s most prestigious address. The roster of residents within its walls represents wealth and power as surely as the inhabitants of surrounding Francophile mansions and luxury apartment towers hoard their assets in overseas bank accounts. Arguably, the cemetery is even more exclusive than the neighborhood—enough cash can buy an impressive residence, but not a surname like Alvear, Anchorena, Mitre, Pueyrred├│n, or Sarmiento."
