The Recoleta area is beautiful with many places to visit. This area of town is the affluent area and much of the area reminded me of Europe. There is a famous cemetery to visit there where Eva Peron is laid to rest. If possible have a guide when touring.

Recolata is an inviting and exciting part of the city with 5-star hotels,beautiful park areas and the City's famous Opera House serving as great destinations. The cemetery is an impressive walk through history and features Evita's final resting place. Tour guides are helpful.

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.
