An area filled with beautiful architecture.

The Recoleta neighbourhood is upscale and features lots of gorgeous buildings. Its a great strolling area and the cemetery is a must see.

It is amazing to see all the ornate structures in this area. Eva Peron's grave is under her family name as her husbands's second wife would not allow it in the family plot. Try to find the off peak times as the line up to see the grave may be long

I thought I would just have a quick visit here but I stayed for ages .. really loved strolling around the mausoleums and taking lots and lots of photos. I walked here from the city centre as I like to walk then went to the mall across the road for a nice drink and gelato. If you like taking photos... More

One of three neighborhoods to spend an afternoon stroll through. Beautiful. Take your time, have a drink, stroll the parks and streets.

I can say that Recoleta is my second favourite neighbourhood in Buenos Aires (after San Telmo). It is much more relaxed then most parts of the city and is very well kept. Felt pretty safe too.

The area is very nice and posh. Many high class restaurant and big brand shops in the area. But you must visit the cemetery, amazing headstones, statues and sculptures.

I really enjoyed strolling round here looking at all the mausoleums each one totally different to the next. Some where totally different to any where else I've been.

We stayed at the Mio Hotel in Recoleta. Loved the relatively quiet neighbourhood, a 5 minute walk to the famed Recoleta Cemetary where besides the massive mausoleums of weathy families, the main attraction would be the mausoleum/tomb of the Duarte Family, with the remains of revered Eva Duarte Peron.

This neighbourhood is very nice. High end shops, nice architecture. But the main attraction is the cemetery. It is well laid out, very well maintained. To see the different styles of tombs, don’t go just for the highlighted ones. Outside there is the market and a few other buildings with displays.

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.
