This audio tour is designed for travelers who are interested in the rich history and artistic beauty embedded within Buenos Aires' oldest cemetery, La Recoleta. Perfect for those with a taste for architecture and storytelling, this escorted journey will immerse you in the elegance of the past through your own exploration. The tour kicks off at the ornate entrance of La Recoleta Cemetery, an open gateway to a treasure trove of stories and secrets. From there, you’ll wander among stunning mausoleums, uncovering tales of love, tragedy, and the lives of Argentina’s most legendary figures. You start with the artistic marvel of Liliana Crociati's tomb and proceed to the mysterious legend surrounding Rufina Cambacérès, then move through the less embellished but historically rich mausoleum of Facundo Quiroga, and continue to the glowing tribute to Domingo Faustino Sarmiento. The path takes you to significant sites including the unassuming final resting place of Eva 'Evita' Perón, moving through the final stories of influential individuals like Carlos Pellegrini and the striking presence of boxer Luis Ángel Firpo. Wrapping up the journey, reflect on the profound narratives of figures such as celebrated writer Adolfo Bioy Casares. The narrative concludes after a memorable walk through this 'city of angels', where beauty and history intertwine at every corner. The journey comes full circle back at the entrance, having experienced a profound connection to Argentina's cultural heart through the silent stories of La Recoleta Cemetery.
