So we walked by and decided to take a break from the sun. The place is not cheap, but the quality is well worth the price. This is great gelato like in Italy, covered as to not be affected by the sun (not in huge...More

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

buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
