During my recent trip to Buenos Aires, we went on a couple adventures: a soccer match, a tango show, and Argentinian food trucks, to name a few. However, no trip to BA would be complete without a visit to Eva Perón’s grave. Eva Perón was the First Lady of Argentina by her husband Juan Perón, in the forties and fifties. But Evita, an actress/singer who was an illegitimate child from rural Argentina, was so beloved that her official title given after her death was the Spiritual Leader of the Nation of Argentina (one she keeps to this day). And if you want to know more, watch Evita, the movie/musical about her life where she’s played by Madonna.

So, given her ridiculous popularity in Argentina, a visit to her grave at Recoleta cemetery was a must.



It was a surprisingly low-key grave, only part of a larger family grave (you can see her small Evita marker below, and another one that says Eva Perón).
