I have to say I was overly impressed with this barrio, it's certainly a place you have to visit. It is touristy, but most tourists stay around the cemetery. Take the afternoon strolling down the streets where the bourgeoisie of Argentina lived. An Argentinian friend told me that Buenos Aires is a city, meant to be seen looking up at... More

The most touristic area of Buenos Aires and, therefore, one of the most expensive ones. At night it's pretty amazing as there are not many people.

Guided tours by volunteer historians are excellent. Many of the sculptures are beautiful and by extremely famous and talented artists

It is the most beautiful cemetery I've visited in the world so far. Every grave is a masterpiece of architecture. You can spend a day there. There are many prominent people buried there. You can take a tour guide and have a walk over the place and moreover listen to some amazing history.

It's similar concept than the cemeteries in New Orleans. The reason it's famous is because Evita is buried there. Asked the staff where her tomb is. It's like a maze, so don't go along, walk with someone. 30-60 minutes is sufficient.

I guess most come here just to view Eva´s tomb, which actually is one of the smaller more austere one´s. There are truly some huge, impressive monuments here. Should be on most to do lists whilst in BA, and the surrounding area is lovely too.

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.
