Disturbing and beautiful, majestic but tenebrous, Recoleta's Cemetery captivates thousands of visitors year after year. Located in the elegant neighborhood of Buenos Aires since the beginning of XIX century, it holds emblematic personalities mausoleums. From each tomb, there are ghosts, myths and urban legends. Beginning with The White Lady to Night knights and from Rufina Cambaceres to Benjamin Solari Parravicini, the City of the Deaths invites us to discover the dark side of a place filled with history, symbols and art.
