We were going to tour on our own but met a private tour guide at the entrance and had a wonderful, fact filled tour. We spent over an hour seeing some amazing mausoleums and statues. We would have missed so many details without Simon's keen knowledge of the cemetery. Fantastic!

It's a wonderful neighborhood to take in all the sights as well as dine and shop. We just loved the Cemetary, Museo Bella Artes and wandering through all the streets. We even walked to the pedestrian street, Florida, from here.

Great area to visit. Go for a walk anytime of day. Enjoy a visit to the Alvear Palace Hotel or the Four Seasons Duhau. I highly recommend a guided tour to the cemetery, yes, I am not kidding. Beautiful sculptures, lots of history.

Beautiful classy part of the city with the some of the gay bars based here. The famous Evita cemetery is here along with the high society like roads - often compared to a petit Paris.

What is realy worth seeing is a Recoleta Cementary. Lots of tombs, resting places of famous argetinian families. If you are in the mood for culture you can enjoy Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes. You can also just relax in green parks (near Plaza Francia) and spend nice time in the evening in small bars.

Recoleta is well known for being the high society neighbourhood in Buenos Aires and for its vibrant nightlife. But you'll enjoy walking around in daytime too. Apart from the obvious attractions, like the cemetery with a real who's who of Argentina's past and the great museums (don't miss the Fine Arts one, with a small but important collection and always...

This part of the city is in my opinion the jewel in the crayon. Easy to vase yourself here as taxis come often. The tree lined streets are full of boutiques and cafes.

It's a must if you're visiting BA. You can visit the cementery, in which you can see monuments of lots of important people. There are beautiful restaurants and parks.

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.
