One walk through the Recoleta will find you some exciting upscale shopping ($350 baby frocks anyone?) but also a scattering of boutiques w styles not available online or in stores. Design is alive in BA -- and I say that as a guy (a real one). Very exciting and enticing to come upon a new look... I can imagine it... More

It was very interesting to see the above ground crypts similar to those in New Orleans. They were beautifully kept and there was a map to indicate where a particular person was buried although Ava Perrons was not well marked

Really nice, comparatively safe from the rest of BA. Upmarket, with Museo, cemetery and restaurants. It is expensive however but worth it to have a break from BA.

Would suggest if looking for Eva's site you hire a guide - they are available at the entrance. We wandered around ourselves and found it absolutely fascinating.

As most reviewers have stated, this area of Buenos Aires is a beautiful place to stroll. Gorgeous architecture, nice restaurants, tree lined streets, but please beware! My husband and I have traveled all over the world without any incidents of crime. We pay attention to warnings, stay in areas deemed safe, and have our wits about us at all times.... More

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.
