No trip to Buenos Aires is complete without stopping at this famous cemetery. I recommend that it is experienced first hand to appreciate the religion, artistry, tradition and the supernatural.

Amazing place to get an understanding of heritage of this great city and country. Families mourn their loved ones and as a visitor was very impressed with the school children attending the area.

Absolutely loved wandering around recoleta cemetery. Highly recommended. Only downside, like with a lot of tourist attractions in Buenos Aires is the lack of information in English

the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment

an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll

You can just show up and go around on your own, or go on the days that English tours are provided free of charge. I think it was on Tuesdays at 11 am., or you can hire a guide. We really didn't need a guide at all. We... More
