I was staying in a hotel and just saw this cemetery from room window. It is something different. Would like to visit and see from inside.

Recoleta cemetery and the adjacent church were one of the highlights of our visit to Buenos Aires. There are a lot of fascinating stories behind some of the people buried here so its worth doing a bit of research (on the web) before you visit.

The only place in the entire Buenos Aires which in my opinion was unique and can't be found elsewhere. We didn't actually plan to see it but we were in it's vicinity and I am glad we did.

Definitely worth a look around at the vast array of mausoleums some really spectacular ones. Visited Eva Perons resting place. All around the outside of the cemetery where stalls selling local handicrafts along with some good bars and cafes. Worth a trip even if it's to say you visited Evita's resting place.

Frankly, walking around a city of the dead but still flashy, is not my cup of tea. My husband, however, loved it! The mix of tombs that were old and ruined and others that were well maintained was a bit creepy. Seeing the decades old coffins through the doors was macabre to me. Seeing Eva Perons tomb is a must... More

It's very nice to get a refreshing breeze after walking through the Bosques de Palermo in a sunny day. The architecture is amazing, and the thought and detail that some of the sculptures got there is amazing. The entrance is free, and there are free guides as well, organized by the cementery's administration which covers the most important areas, so... More

The dead live better than most people. .. . . . . .this place is awe-inspiring. The cache and social status necessary to be buried here boggles the mind as only select people can be buried here and also have the money to do it. It is worth visiting.. . .and btw if you are here for Evita Peron her... More

No visit to BA is complete with visiting Recoleta Cemetery and Eva Peron's grave. It's huge and some mausoleums are the size of houses. Some have been abandoned which gives it a rather creepy but still somewhat amazing touch. Have been several times yet and a, sure to go back.

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are 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 buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
