Recoleta Cemetery

It may seem a little morbid that the Recoleta Cemetery is one of the top tourist destinations in Buenos Aires, but it was actually really interesting and quite beautiful. We spent a couple of hours wandering around the crypts, which ranged from elaborate statues adorning marble apartments, to what looked like run down cupboards with dusty, broken coffins on the ground. The cemetery is also home to the Duarte family crypt, where Evita Peron lies.

The cemetery provides an abundance of photographic opportunities, but here are just a few of my favourites.
