Worth a stop while in Recoleta, Buenos Aires

Very unique sculpture right behind the Museo de Bellas Artes. Nice stop and walk around - good to do if you are in Recoleta but would not recommend a special trip.

It opens with daylight and closes at night. Surrounded by big green gardens to have a wonderful picnic.

The parc is nice. If the weather is bad (no sun), the flower is closed. Not a must see, but if you have time it's OK.

Stopped for a look on a tour of the city, good to stretch the legs.I suppose a clever person made this which is supposed to open and close like a flower according to the light, but wasnt working on our day. Better things to see really.

This is something not to be missed. Great work of art and technology. The water fountain and the park are very nice too.

A masterfully done piece of sculpture that opens and closes and even moves with the position of the sun. In a great open grassy space with lots of places to sit and hang out with friends, it is also close to many other tourist activities. So give it at least a few minutes. I think you'll be glad you did.

When we visited, there was a perfect blue sky and the combination of the sky reflecting down on the sculpture and the reflection of the water below it made it a beautiful blue colour. Worth a trip to see this!

This enormous flower opens and closes with sunlight. Its huge, Enter the park and get up close to realise the size of this. Spend an hour relaxing in the sun on the sun loungers Once you have got up close and done your photo, there is nothing much else in this park, so continue your visit onto Recoleta or around... More

really an amazing art piece. at night the flower petal has light flashing through it making it more magnificent. its right next to the school of law. and its on the park grounds so great for kids to run around while you sit and marvel in this art.

Floraris is an interesting monument located in an open area of the Recoleta neighborhood - there's plenty of space to take a walk and admire the monument from different angles.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
