Much bigger than you think, there is a lot to see and worth taking your camera. Most people just see Evita's resting place, which is like just seeing the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. You dont need a map, though a pompous woman with a fake British accent can sell you one. Most people you wont know, so it might... More

Recoleta looks very prestigious and beautiful. Many museums, the Cemetery, monuments and palaces. One day could be enough if you are not going inside the museums.

This a very alive and active area with brightly colored buildings and trendy shops. This is a fun area to browse the streets or sit in an outdoor cafe patio and sip a delicious beverage and listen to the music all around. This is a must see area and is easily accessed by the public bus system however it is... More

Just strolling through what is like a village of little stone houses but they are the grand resting places of Argentinas Wealthy is a great way to spend the afternoon.

Unfortunately it was raining when we arrived here and there was a funeral going on. So it was a little distracting. The "graves" were certainly interesting and yes one must see the movie Evita or read the book before going here as it is significant. It is apparent that the people loved Evita and her story is interesting.

A cemetery with very beautiful statues and tombstones. Make sure to see Evita's grave (you'll recognise it by the amount of flowers).

Four places in Recoleta to consider. Rossi & Caruso: if that US 30K is burning a hole in your pocket and you just have to have a king-size chinchilla throw for your bed then this is the place. Me, I passed on the chinchilla throw but went for the great leather carry all. L Vuitton may be a more recognizable... More

Recoleta is the area where the famous cemetery and church are located. The cemetery has some very unique and beautiful tombs. The most visited tomb is, of course, Evita Peron. However she is buried under her family name, Durant. The area around the cemetery and church has lots of nice restaurants, hotels, and shops. The Galerias Pacifico mall is also... More
