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.

We chose to stay at a hotel in Recoleta and were not disappointed. The neighbourhood is quiet, safe and full of cafes, restaurants, shopping and sites of cultural importance. A must see part of the city...especially the cemetery which is not only a treasure trove of architecturally stunning mausoleums but an important repository of Argentine history through the centuries.
