Opulent burial places

One part in BA was missing in the blog, because I wanted to put in the pics separate.

The cemetery of Recoleta (Cementerio de Recoleta): On 55,000 square meters there are 4,800 dead-houses. Yes, no tombs, but houses. The coffins are stored in small rooms, which are neatly arranged and regularly cleaned. Picture frames with personal photos and flowers are next to them. There are no limits to the splendor and creativity of the houses and sculptures. Many personalities are here, including Evita Peron.


  1. I’m so glad you included the “dead houses”. I had no idea.
