Having walked all around BA I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Very nice part of the city and easy access to the central part of town. Palermo is also nice but just too far away to walk everywhere. We stayed in the Urban Apartments which were fantastic. We returned three times after visiting rural Argentina

RECOLETA where the rich upper class live ... Amazing buildings, rich in historic. Stunning shop fronts. Recoleta is an area of historical and architectural interest so worth visiting!

Very interesting and well worth a visit. Just wander around - the cemetery is quite overwhelming in size.

Where Palermo is good for restaurants and boutique shops, Recoleta is good for architecture and authenticity. It's definitely a bit grittier, but it's a great (and safe) place to walk around and see a different side of Buenos Aires. Don't miss the cemetery or the small craft market.

i did not enjoy Recoleta as much as thought from reading and word of mouth . i think that the architecture is gorgeous at times but the dirty and run down display of Buenos Aires makes it less enjoyable . ( the cemetery is a must)

It is another name for cementerio in Spanish. Maybe Recoleta sounds better to foreigners. Yes, it is a place to visit if you are already in Buenos Aires. It will leave a lasting memory after knowing Evita better.

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.
