Walked to Recoleta from the Florida street shops. It's a nice neighborhood, the architecture of the buildings is really nice. It's more upscale, so you see the European elegance to the buildings. The park in Recoleta is nice and there are artisans selling their goods, which was cool to see. The famous cemetery is in this neighborhood. It's a bit... More

I liked the neighborhood. Our hotel was right behind the Recoleta Cemetery (where Evita is buried), so lots of activity there. There is a mall and lots of restaurants and coffee shops nearby as well. The shopping is also good. I liked the Alvear hotel in which I would have most enjoy afternoon tea if we had a couple of... More

The cemetery is an interesting place to visit. Almost like a small city. It would be better to visit with a guide. I went there by myself, so missed the history and lots of stories.

Nice shopping area with a very nice street/flee market on weekends and great restaurants and bars. Evita crypt and other impressive cemetery structures are just a gate away.

The area is beautiful with the monastery but be prepared for a weird experience when visiting the graveyard. We followed the crowds to find Eva Peron's grave!

We went to this area to see Eva Peron's gravesite, but found a nice neighborhood full of good restaurants and shops. The Recoleta Cemetery is very nice to stroll through. We did not exactly know where Eva's tomb was so we strolled through the graveyard. There are very nice examples of Art Nouveau and Art Deco sculpture as well as... More

The Recoleta cemetary is fascinating. It has the most extravagent, over the top crypts which are basically free standing buildings. The designs are incredible.

Loved all of the stores, the people were so friendly and when we visited the cemetery, it was in much better shape than my last visit. People still come to Eva Peron's burial place, touch her face and lay flowers down to her memory.
