I loved this place, it had a sense of quiet and reverence. You can look up famous people by name and find their tombs. I like Father Fahy's tomb and of course Eva Peron. Good to look up the history of Buenos Aires' leaders before you go. Some tombs are very extravagant other are plain but all are beautiful in... More

There where a few street performers playing interesting music and a good number of stalls selling a variety of goods. When you travel you frequently see the same "stuff" over and over again. However here there are different items for sale, unquie crafts and items. It is a good way to watch the time go by.

Upscale neighborhood with hotels, restaurants, and shops. The neighborhood is adjacent to the Recoleta Cemetery where the wealthy and famous of Argentine society are buried.

We were totally captivated by this area of Buenos Aires - it really does have something of the sense of Paris - with its wonderful examples of French architecture. This area has some great coffee, shopping and Galleries - Recoleta Cemetery, Cultural centre, dont miss the wonderful Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, walking distance to other sights or a short...

After visiting Recoleta you understand why Buenos Aires is named Paris of Latin America. Wonderful streets with splendid buildings serving as luxury residence, embassy or top class hotels and shops. And, even if there is a kind of similarity with Paris, you still feel that you are in Buenos Aires and understand why this city is so amazing! Don't leave... More

Who is who in Argentine Society and history is buried here. Unless you read up I recommend on it take a guide who stand at the entry and who will walk you around and take you to the highlights, we once had a guide who showed us all the Masonic inspired cenotaphs. Evita is buried here.

This place is so Classy, with luxurious homes and hotels. Upscale shops like those on Rodeo Drive or Fifth Ave. I stayed at the beautiful Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt and I did not want my visit to end.

Taking a walk along the beautiful streets of LA RECOLETA is a living experience of the glorious past ( and present ! ) of my favorite town... just take your time to picture those splendid facades, houses built after Budapest and Paris, sip a cup of the best coffee, enjoy great restaurants and just seat to see time go by...

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.
