Recoleta is a unique and historic location. It is an active cemetery, so if that creeps you out--be forewarned. You can roam around for free. We hired a free-lance guide at the entrance and that was well worth it. You can find Eva Peron's grave by following the crowds.

The Paris of the Americas. Fantastic City, Hotels, Restaurants and very interesting shopping. You can find all the glamor stores but what is fun and unique are the stores that sell leather goods. Saddles, jackets, ridding materials, gaucho odds and ends. I loved living in Recoleta for two years. Favour is my favorite restaurant on Posades behind the Alvear Palace... More

It is a nice area. The restaurants aren't as interesting as in the Palermo district but the cemetery is worth a visit for sure!

Beautiful and classical. You should not travel to Buenos Aires without walking around the city, and La Recoleta is the perfect place to walk, eat and spend the afternoon.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood 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 centered 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.
