Frankly, ego played a big role in building up the magnificent cemetery in Recoleta reserved for the aristocrats and the rich of the Argentine society. The grandeur is simply overwhelming, and makes it a wonderful place to go for a walk and contemplate. Industrialists and entrepreneurs, politicians and writers, madams and millionaires, all designated this place as their final resting place. It is certainly true to say that a lot of Argentina's history is buried here.
Do you think wealthiness obliges the rich to be buried in abundant mausoleums?
