Featured Argentina Story | Argentina : Tears for Evita
How the legacy of Argentina's lovely first lady lives on.
Every morning in Buenos Aires, crowds arrive in La Recoleta Cemetery to lay flowers

before Madonna played her in the film version of Evita, or the Andrew Lloyd Webber
musical became an international hit. In fact, since the very day she died in 1952,

family, she came to Buenos Aires at age 15 to try her luck as a radio actress.
