Gorgeous apartments and restaurants abound - the famous graveyard holds Evita's remains and is still a place of pilgrimage.

The Sunday market was a bit sad; maybe because the weather was bad. I had hoped to find a fun, bustling atmosphere, but many of those displaying their wares looked bored, and the wares themselves weren't exceptional. Walking around Recoleta was lovely though, very nice archictecture on some streets. Not much to do, though - can't get into most buildings.

Really loved the Recoleta cemetery Magnificent architecture ,gives one a real sense of the wealth that was in this wonderful city at the start of the twentieth century. Also went to Madero Tango and loved it

Near Santa Fé, close to the subte (underground), with lots of shops and cafés. Don´t forget to visit the book shop El ateneo.

Recoleta is an upscale neighborhood. You can visit the interesting Recoleta cemetery (English tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11AM for free) to see Evita's family crypt as well as the crypts of political, historical and military figures. Walking toward the Museo Bellas Artes, you will find nice parks and a huge flea market on Sunday.

This cemetery is amazing! We accepted the offer of a 'private tour' from an ex-pat English 'local'- his wealth of knowledge on the cemetery really enhanced our visit (& yes we checked his info out, & it was all correct). This is a Buenos Aires 'must see'.

This is one of the most interesting areas of BA, and of course the cemetery should be high on your list of places to visit, you could spend hours in this fascinating place.
