I travel the world looking at cemeteries and artwork, and this has to rate near the top. A city of the dead, it feels like you are walking through a real city.

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.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood 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 centred 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.
