The cemetery at Recoleta in Buenos Aires is one of the most famous in the world, and the statuary is impressive. The boats are on the grave of a guy who drowned. You can take a Sunday outing there and then shop in a nice trade fair outside. The most famous occupant is probably Eva Duarte de Perón, Evita to you and the world, but her crypt with the Duarte family is of no particular distinction beyond the large groups of sightseers, or maybe worshipers, who gather to put flowers there.
