Born in 1788, his lifetime coincided with Argentine independence & the troubled times of Rosas & Lavalle. Elected four times as governor of Corrientes Province, Ferré passed away in 1867. His tomb was declared a National Historic Monument in 1946 & has a unique, little-bit-of-everything style:
Update (06 May 2011): Thanks to Sergio, posted below are photos of the transfer of Pedro Ferré’s remains to the cathedral in Corrientes in 1964. And surprisingly enough, this vault had it’s declaration of National Historic Monument removed afterwards. This is the only case we know of a vault in Recoleta Cemetery losing its status by presidential decree. The MHN protective status was transferred to the spot where Ferré now rests in peace. ¡Gracias Sergio!
