Grave extravagance not just for Evita

There is only one statue for one of the most famous Portenos (people from Buenos Aires) Eva Perron. And its almost forgotten. Far more attention is given to her grave, which is situated in the middle of the mind-blowing cemetary of Recoleta. If you have seen Pere Lachaise in Paris and thought it was impressive, go here. Street after street of the most amazing structures, marble, statues, chapels, gold, silver. It must cost millions for those families that are fortunate enough to own a family grave here.

But Eva Peron- Duarte’s family grave may not be the most extravagant, it is definitely the most visited!
