The walk focuses on art & architecture, a number of important historical events, a bit of urban legend & of course the cemetery’s most famous resident.  Eva María Duarte de Perón —simply Evita to her devotées— had a bizarre post-mortem journey which is described at length. The entire walk should take about two hours to complete… keep in mind that the PDF is directed to those who want to explore the cemetery in depth.
