Easy to get around to explore the sights. People were so friendly. Ate out locally. Trees and parks. Great vibe and atmosphere. Hoping to get back there one day. I was there in April 2013.

Recoleta is an area of great historical and architectural interest. It is one of the most affluent neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires. There are a number of museums and cultural centres and some of the most prestigious schools in the city. Many people associate Recoleta with its cemetery and Eva Peron-that alone is an excellent reason to visit the area. We... More

You start your tour of La Recoleta by entering through the church. There are tours if you like, but I just did my own walking tour. There are signs, but they are in Spanish.

Some great restaurants and night spots. Right across from the cemetery where Evita rests. This area is also undergoing some revitalization efforts. Worth the visit.

Great place for a walking! Nice coffe shops and the famous cemetery to know. Totally recomended! The square in front of the cemetery is friendly and beautiful. Is not an enormous place, but is really nice.

the only area in Buenos Aires I actually felt safe in! Least amount of graffiti and dog mess piles of any other neighborhood. Shame there is no convenient subway line.

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.
