Great neighborhood. Reminds me of New Orleans in the US. Many great restaurants and there is a Street Fair of local crafts on Saturday. Volta ice cream is a must. The Cemetary is worth a couple hours of your time. The art museum is within walking distance. The silver flower is also close. Very easy to use the bus and... More

This site is so different from cemeteries in the US. No grass but lots of mausoleums - each in competition with the next for beauty. This is the final resting place for Eva Peron. 'Don't Cry for Me Argentina' went through my head all day!

Worth visiting, Recoleta is a pleasant area, we did not have time to visit the museum next door.We had a very good guide who took us all around the cemetery which made it more interesting. This area has quite a high crime record so ladies no jewellery !

Just walk round here with shops, restaurants and you'll see a lovely part of the city. Walked through here as a tour then grabbed a drink. Very cute

We did not have a map and rambled along in the heat and humidity because we wanted to explore on our own. Tombs of all materials and sizes can be found here. Fun to look for burial places of the famous such as Evita Peron.

So much to see from various architectural periods. I could have spent the whole day in the Cemetario Recoleta. The latest entrance is 17:00hrs as it closes at 17:30 so take note.
