Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Opened in 1822. It is where the Buenos Aires elite are buried. Familes purchase and build grand and very expensive mausoleums. It is quite the symbol of status to be buried in the Recoleta. Evita Peron, former presidents, etc. can be found in the Recoleta. Familes are buried together, as you can see from the photo above (a look inside one of the mausoleums).
