Secret: Argentine aristocratic tombs

Feb 09, 2019

The National Cemetery, also known as the Noble Cemetery, has so far honoured some 7,000 Argentine social elites in this 10-acre mausoleum. The cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Buenos Aires. The cemetery was originally the back garden of the church and became a cemetery in 1822. It is limited to burial and digs. In Argentina, the identity of the nobility is very strict and requires the family to have more than ten years of glory. After the glory of the tenth century, non-"upstarts" can accidentally "inflow." Therefore, since the birth of the National Cemetery, it has established its "noble bloodline." The architectural style of the tomb of the European palace further strengthens the prominent identity of the tomb. Many famous families in Argentina will buy tombs here. Today, 23 Argentine Vice Presidents are resting here.

The national cemetery, with its noble positioning, has become a symbol of identity, status and honor, and has become the most desirable "permanent home" for the Argentine people.

The block where the National Cemetery is located is also the most prosperous aristocratic district in Buenos Aires. In front of the cemetery is the aristocratic cafe and brand shops. This world-famous cemetery, which is not exposed to the mountains, stands quietly between the fashionable streets, and naturally blends with the expensive shops and elegantly decorated coffee houses. Every weekend, the French square outside the cemetery will gather hundreds of handicraft stalls to form the most famous characteristic market in Buenos Aires.

Looking up, the National Cemetery is full of sculptures, many of which are uniquely crafted by European masters. The sculpture has a brave warrior and a feminine goddess. In addition to the legendary patron saint sculptures in the West, some cemeteries also have some sculptures of life, such as maids, children and cats and dogs, and sculptures of auspicious angels on the temple. The face of the sculpture is gentle and gentle, with traces of imitating the scene of life. Some mausoleums also have scroll-like narrative sculptures, which trace the history of struggles of generations. Fine workmanship, long-term meaning. They use sculpture to express the family's ideological characteristics and behavioral characteristics, and record the family's prosperity.
