As part of the Evita tour we visited her grave in the Cementerio de La Recoleta. It may sound strange but don't miss a visit while in Buenos Aires. We have done a similar tour in Paris but the tombs and mausoleums here are even more elaborate. Evita most well known internationally because of Lloyd Weber musical and movie but... More

Visited with my wife sorry to say that we have to say that we didn't get the whole meaning of the exhibition as it was all in Spanish, did notice a poster stuck behind a door on a wall that listed all the concentration camps that the Germans operated during second world war didn't see the need for it.

I visited this place on a Saturday afternoon. I didn't think much of some of the exhibitions (but of course each of us will have a different tastes) but I did enjoy the Andy Goldestein exhibition which was a series of photographs of families from all over South America in their homes. Some would refer to the exhibition as 'poverty... More

This place is a decent enough addition to touring the cemetery. You can include a visit to the touch science museum, for a fee. Without children, I would suggest just wandering the hallways and different galleries while enjoying the interior architecture of this building. The place is a bit beat up, makes sense as it's in BA - at least... More

We went on a week day to do some shopping and all the handmade stores were closed by mandate of the government who now only allows them to be opened on weekends and holidays - so much for tourist who come during the week. To purchase modern style furniture it is one place a person can go but if you... More

It will always depend on what is being shown for the place to be more or less interesting, but the Centro Cultural La Recoleta is really nice. It's fantastic to have a massive concentration of touristic attractions in the same neighborhood and in the same place. the center is beside the cemetery, the Pilar Church, the Center for design and...

I went there to a performance of Fuerza Bruta and it was great. They offer very good cultural activities. The venue could be improved, but then again it is supposed to be a relax atmosphere
