My name is Pablo, I am an official local tour guide who enjoy creating walking experiences with a personal touch. I have been lucky to guide a variety of interesting institutions in the city like the oldest Church in Buenos Aires; the French Embassy, the Carlos Gardel´s House Museum, different temples in Palermo district at night, and other areas in the city and outside. Always happy to walk around and share the details waiting for being discovered.

Tour description

An experience to enjoy the silence and feel a little lost in the vastness. We will meet at the main gate of the Chacarita Cemetery (approx: Guzmán Av. 680, neo-classical facade, stairs) and explore its streets on foot in search of mausoleums of great architectural design, learning about the changes of this necropolis and its relationship with the history of the City. We will visit mythical characters that rest here, between legends and myths, from popular saints to tango masters and payadores. Forgotten characters, difficult recesses, we will feel lost but the stories will guide us ...

A pesar de tocar un dia lluvioso, Pablo continuó el recorrido y no sorprendio entregandonos paragüas, un gesto poco habitual entre los guías.

The Chacarita Cemetery is well worth a visit, and a guide is needed to not get lost and overwhelmed. Pablo did the job. He also suggested a traditional pizza place from 1947 that was right across the street. It was a good day, off the beaten path. Thanks Pablo!
