Buenos Aires: La Chacarita Cemetery in Pictures

In preparing the Moonlight on Tombstones article I requested the assistance of journalist and photographer Marcelo Metayer, who most graciously agreed to provide photographs for the section on the La Chacarita Cemetery in his native Buenos Aires, whose landmarks and monuments he has chronicled in visual form. The photos of this extensive necropolis, housing the remains of politicians, artists and musical giants like Carlos Gardel, the best known Tango singer of the 20th century, truly deserve to be presented separately for the enjoyment of INEXPLICATA’s readers, so that the cemetery’s “poetry in stone” may be better appreciated. ¡Gracias Marcelo!
