This neighborhood starts approximately at the end of Av. 9 de Julio, close to the road that gets to the Airport. It is very traditional full of beautiful apartment building, cafes and restaurants. You can go walking from Av. 9 de Julio passing through Recoleta and their famous cemetery up to the Floralis Generica Monument.

A good place to stay with lots of eating options and easy access to the downtown and the sights. The cemetery is as interesting as people say and there are some excellent museums.

Worth a visit, it is a beautiful place. I can't imagine how huge these monuments have been built for some of these people.

On most of my 40+ visits to Buenos Aires, I visit the old barrio/quarter of Recoleta (BA’s most upscale neighborhood) for either fine dining, a leisure lunch, or a Sunday stroll and see the tourist items being sold on the park lawns opposite the church. This used to be the leading tourist area, but has slipped a little with the... More

Typical touristic & aristocratic site, very safe to walk around, relatively close to downtown. Restaurants and bars are remarkable for their category and the crew is able to speak english.

A wander amongst the tombs of Argentina's rich and dead, including, of course, the crowd around Evita's family mausoleum.

I absolutely love Recoleta, especially in the weekends. Every Saturday and Sunday there's an artesanal fair at the plaza Francia, where dozens of artist sell their goods. From leather goods, to jewelry, you can find tons of beautiful hand-made gifts and things for the house. On a good day there is usually live music and you will most likely see... More

Beautiful to see the burial place of Eva Pereon. Stunning views and though a somber experience it was also lovely.

Staying in Recoleta

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.
