Cementerio de la Recoleta. Buenos Aires, Argentina

One of the most stunning cemeteries I've ever visited, both in terms of architectural design and sheer scale. On two visits we barely covered a third of the space, if that. We were also fortunate to go when it wasn't busy, so we simply wandered around without a map or guide. Tracking down Eva Peron's resting place was tricky even with the use of a map as she is buried under her family name Duarte. The stray cats that have made the cemetery their home are also a main attraction, although they're not in as good condition as their fellow companions over at the Botanical Garden.
