Overview of the tour in Buenos Aires

Haunting and beautiful, majestic but gloomy, the Recoleta Cemetery attracts thousands of visitors year after year. Located in the elegant neighborhood of Buenos Aires since the early nineteenth century, it houses mausoleums of the most emblematic characters of the country. Behind each tomb there are ghosts, myths and urban legends. From the Lady in White to the Knights of the Night and from Rufina Cambaceres to Benjamin Solari Parravicini, the city of the dead invites us to explore the hidden side of a place full of history, symbolism and art.
