Visit the top two sites in Buenos Aires together—Plaza de Mayo & Recoleta Cemetery—and save US $2 off the separate purchase price!
START YOUR DAY
First visit Plaza de Mayo. It only occupies the equivalent of two city blocks, but there isn’t a more important public space in the city or even the nation. Site of the second foundation of Buenos Aires, Plaza de Mayo has witnessed cries for independence, civil strife, waves of immigration, Perón-inspired fervor & more than a few popular protests in recent years. There’s no place better to see the city’s past & present.
After a relaxing lunch, head to Recoleta Cemetery… by this time basking in late afternoon sun. The walk focuses on art & architecture, a number of important historical events, a bit of urban legend & of course the cemetery’s most famous resident. Eva María Duarte de Perón—simply Evita to her devotées—had a bizarre post-mortem journey which is described at length. After seeing the nation’s beginnings in Plaza de Mayo, Recoleta Cemetery shows just how glorious an ending can be.
