so much family, so much history..... amazing to see family mausoleums and wonder about the past, about the people and about the way we celebrate the ritual of death. definitely a place to visit. lovely statuary, beautiful memorials to the long- gone. missed the free guided tour, and had to wander through in a hurry. was surprised to see EVita...

It is worth visiting the Recoleta cemetary, where most famous Argentinians have their resting place, very impressive and it was fun to try to find Evita's monument.

I am not a psycho or anything, I just cemetaries in general and this has been my favorite so far! I am sure you all will like it if you don't like this sort of places. It's filled with marvelous statues in different styles.

Love to walk that zone, very nice with large parking near the cemetery, try to visit this one (in the day), its very morbid, but a place to visit. In the near by zone you have malls, a lot of restaurants and cafes.

Beautiful cemetery, showcasing long lost wealth of Buenos Aires. Add to it the grave of Evita with truly moved Argentinians praying next to it - a must see!

They call BA the Paris of South America and this neighborhood is why. Walk around the cemetery and have a Farnet Branca and coke at a cafe nearby like the locals.

It is a clean, well-kept district full of history and attractions, particularly the Recoleta Cemetery, which is an extensive mausoleum. There are also open market opens on the weekend with an array of merchandise, food, and local musicians. I also felt very safe there.
