Monday Morning Blues – Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires, Argentina

The most famous grave in the cemetery is the site where Eva Peron is laid to rest.

It is said that such was her popularity in the whole of South America that florists the length of the continent sold out of flowers during the mourning period.

Recoleta Cemetery is an amazing collection of extravagant graves with many architectural styles on display – Art Deco, Renaissance, Gothic, Art Nouveau etc. Well worth a leisurely amble, and not in the least bit macabre.
