Recoleta is an up scale area of B.A.. Very nice hotels and restaurants with a French influence. Some sidewalk dining for people watching. Top brand stores for shopping. Nice parks and be sure to visit Evita's

This is a must visit. You can self guide quite easily and there are a lot of pushy people wanting to guide you when you can do without them. Some are a bit agro so be aware,

It is a sight you will never see anywhere else - row after row of incredible edifices each with its own story - I would highly recommend you go with a guide who can explain in detail the highlights of each important tomb - just to walk yourself through it is ok but you lose the history- not to be...

We took the HoHo Bus to Recoleta to see the sights and the Cemetery. The cemetery was fascinating and we had quite a time locating Eva Peron. The rest of Recoleta seemed pretty mundane. I was expecting something more like Beverly Hills but unless we missed the good parts, it was just so-so. I'm glad we stayed near Calle Florida... More

This is a mandatory stop on any Buenos Aires itinerary. The cemetery is filled with the history, the charm, the stories and the culture of the city. From the materials to the reflections of nature thought provoking questions abound.

Many areas of BA are not safe to walk in but Recoleta is heavily patrolled. The streets are clean and locals flock to its mall, al fresco restaurants and bars and famous monuments - like Eva Peron's mausoleum in the walled cemetery. It is a happy place not far from the domestic airport or cruise ship terminal.

A great place to walk. Tree-lined streets and fabulous architecture.Lots of cafes to rest in. High-end stores and all the foreign consulates. If you are a bride player, there is a great club that has a game almost every night.

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.
