“Great location for wandering, food and cemetery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

You can choose between peace and quiet or crowds in the Recoleta. The area around the cemetery is really mobbed but fun and there are actually some great restaurants. Also, don't miss going to La Biela...we experienced some amazing tango right out front. The street fair was average....San Telmo is MUCH better!

Everyone wants to see the tomb of Elvita. On Sunday there is a great artisans market at the garden near the cemetery .

I am always ready for a good cemetary and Recoleta did not disappoint. Could have spend a day there wondering the aisles. Don't miss it1

“Okay...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Was told and read many things about visiting Recoleta. It is supposed to be where tourists find things to do. So me and my travel mate wandered around Recoleta on the extra day we had in Buenos Aires after missing our flight. We found it just average, but a nice walk. The neighborhood was better than most of Buenos Aires. The Metal Floral is nice to see though, but nothing else to do.
