Located in Buenos Aires, the La Recoleta Cemetery contains the graves of famous people including Eva Perón, Raúl Alfonsín, and presidents of Argentina. Built around 1732, the cemetery surrounds the Our Lady of Pilar convent and a church, and contains incredibly beautiful crypts such as the one captured above.

The city that surrounds the cemetery is the bustling capital of Argentina. Full of tango, art, and hundreds of bookstores, it’s no surprise that a culture with such a flair for life would have a similar flair for the after-life. [via NileGuide]
