  • We will start with the namesake cementery , once through the doors of this colossal necropolis, which occupies four blocks and houses, we’ll be forced to discredit the popular notion that we are all equal in death. There, well admire the ornate mausoleums and funeral monuments by famed architects and artists, and well pay a visit to the final resting place of Eva Peron, whose presence in the Cemetery is utterly ironic, considered she championed the poor and the humble against her hated, oligarchs.

  • The visit will continue along Avenida 9 de Julio, Corrientes Avenue, the Obelisk and on to the picturesque district of La Boca, where there is the famous Caminito street. There, many artists exhibit their works, which themes are related to the influence of European immigrants (mainly Italians), who arrived at the end of the XIX century. One of the most renowned Argentine artists was Benito Quinquela Martin, who lived in La Boca, and painted about this particular neighbourhood and the port. His atelier is nowadays a Museum named after him.
