Beautiful catholic sculptures and architecture for the final resting place of the wealthy and connected families of Buenos Aires. Can be daunting to try to see everything. We didn't go with our guide and only had 20 minutes to stop; therefore it was difficult to...More

Nothing like it! Better to go with a guide as so many of the mausoleums have fascinating stories. The big draw is Eva Perons burial site, but the entire place is sensational.

Cemeteries are not always on the tourist route but Recoleta is recommended. Of course, Eva Perón is buried here and a lot of people visit because of this. Her family tomb is not easy to find and is not sign posted but is quietly restrained...More

Apparently the number one tourist destination in BA. I wasn’t that impressed with how well maintained a lot of the graves and mausoleums are. Disappointing

Beautiful sculptures and interesting stories behind them. We went with a private guide and it was totally worth it.

This cemetery is different from many others we've visited in Latin America. The rooms are very elaborate, and made from beautiful granite, gabbro, basalt, and other stone. The geology is almost more interesting than the cemetery itself.

Take a guided tour or you may never find Eva Peron’s resting place. In this vast cemetery of family mausoleums, Eva Peron chose to be interred with her mother. It is difficult to find as it is not on a main path, but down a...More

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

Take the line H (yellow one) to Las Heras. From there it is a short walk to the cementery. For further information about public transportation download the app ‘Como Llego’, it’s very helpful.

Names of trees (5 Replies)
I recently returned from a visit to Buenos Aires and was impressed by the horticulture aspects of the city. I'm certain someone told me the names of things when I was there but I've forgotten some aspects. Could someone please identify the trees with purple flowers that seemed to be everywhere and the large tree with spreading branches that covers most of the outdoor patio at La Biela outside the Recoleta Cemetery.

the trees with the purple flowers are Jacaranda trees.

Neighborhood to stay for 6 weeks with 4 year old (6 Replies)
My husband, 4 year old son, and I are planning a nice long visit to BA in January and February of 2015. We've been pouring over everything trying to decide on where to rent a 2 bedroom apartment. We really identify with funky San Telmo and love the old renovated buildings, but we're pretty sure that's not the best place to be our base neighborhood as its a bit out of the way and doesn't have quite the same amenities that are more necessary when traveling with a kid. So, as with most...More

Palermo has some fabulous areas with old buildings, balconies, gardens behind high walls .. cobblestone streets. It is charming, safe, family friendly and you can walk to Recoleta from there. Recoleta has Embassies, shops, restaurants and miles of parks with fenced in playgrounds, a "lake" for Sunday sailboat races, museums etc. You really can't go wrong with either one and they border each other .. I am talking about Palermo or Palermo Botanico .. not Soho .. Las Heras is a huge blvd...More
