This cemetery in the upscale neighborhood of Recoleta is a beautiful place to take a stroll. It is laid out in streets, with narrow walkways, and is best known as the resting place of Eva Peron and several other Argentinian presidents.The entrance is through gates with tall Greek columns, and the architecture of the tombs varies greatly; some are not well maintained. Each tomb has the name etched in the stone; some have plaques attached.While on my visit, I noticed many feral cats. They seemed tame, and most were laying on top of the stones and sleeping their day away!
