Expert Tip. Most visitors to Buenos Aires know of the cemetery at Recoleta, but fewer are aware of the church of Nuestra Señora de Pilar, which flanks the cemetery's main entrance on Junín. Built in 1732, the church is now a national historic monument. Visitors are encouraged to view this architectural treasure before paying respects at Evita's tomb.
