A popular landmark, Recoleta cemetery, houses the famous spirits of Argentine revolutionary and literary past
It’s like a small walled city, with creepy but very picturesque crypts..
You never know what’s hidden there, until you, too, unleash your curiosity
Most tombs are locked. Is someone stealing the dead?
Those left at peace have layers of spiderwebs to protect them
and some tombs even tend to walk around at night..
..or fly around?
just imagine the stories buried in that endless necropolis, of which hundreds remain unexplored and forgotten I felt myself surrounded by legends, by souls who no longer have owners, are flying freely in an ocean of sun rays, a little outing from the darkness they have come to possess.. but not all souls are dark, lots in memory, day after day, or even wiser the more they are forgiven
(- inspired by Carlos Ruiz Zafon)
On a quiet autumn weekday the only crowd you’ll run into is around Eva Peron’s grave
Which is laden with fresh flowers, as if she passed away only very recently
Her fans like to write that Eva’s spirit is forever alive
