There are some very grand family tombs in this cemetery including Eva Perons . Well worth a visit . Do a guided tour if possible.

Recoleta is a must see area while visiting Buenos Aires, the famous cemetery, beautiful buildings and cafes, makes this neighborhood an important part of the history of the city, if you have the opportunity visit the iconic Alvear Palace Hotel you won't be disappointed.

We spent a few hours walking around here. There is a lot to look at and if you like looking at old graveyards you will enjoy this experience

Absolutely worth a visit! It's eery and beautiful all at the same time. There's lots of cats that 'guard' the tombs which are very friendly. Evita is tucked away but quite easy to find if you follow the tour groups. I got a lot out of this without a guide.

Recoleta is a combination of an historic cemetery full of historic meaning, modern shopping and restoration, full of life.

Recoleta is an up scale area of B.A.. Very nice hotels and restaurants with a French influence. Some sidewalk dining for people watching. Top brand stores for shopping. Nice parks and be sure to visit Evita's

Every type of architecture is represented. Somewhat bizarre, but definitely worth the visit. Evita's timb is the most popular.

This is a must visit. You can self guide quite easily and there are a lot of pushy people wanting to guide you when you can do without them. Some are a bit agro so be aware,

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.
