We were advised by a former resident of BA that the cemetery was worth a visit. In case you are under the misapprehension like we were that this would be a field with headstones, it is nothing like it! The family crypts are elaborate stone work and some have mosaics as well. The entrances tell you the famous people's remains... More

Great neighborhood to just walk around in, look in the shops, visit the restaurants and cafés. It's very different from the other neighborhoods in Buenos Aires - Full of lots of old buildings with beautiful architecture.

Recoleta is beautiful with a lot of big squares and monuments. It is a little expensive to get food and book Hotels/ Hostels there but it worth to get some time to know the place.

We specifically went here because we knew it was a famous site and it is where Eva Peron is interred. The musem dedicated to Evita in Palermo is also worth a visit.

Beautiful neighborhood and cool cafe and stores and at the same time very expensive. It's nice to visit this place to see a more clean and organized side of BA.

Loved the area. It's clean and picturesque with beautiful architecture and nice parks. The shopping is phenomenal with many boutiques offering unusually interesting things. Though a bit pricey, the US$ is strong enough that you can find some good buys. We stayed at the Alvear Palace which is a good starting point for walking, shopping and sightseeing. The Recoleta Cemetery... More

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.
