While we did not have a guide or a formal tour, we took our time just perusing the mausoleums and found the final resting place of Eva Peron. Clearly some families have not maintained their mausoleums, and others are impeccable. Nice places for snacks across...More

This place is one of a kind in the world. You could spend hours here walking the streets of the various tombs and crypts. Very sad but truly amazing! A must see when you come to Buenos Aires!

This is a must see when in BA. It is in the upscale Recoleta area. I never expected a cemetary to be this beautiful and interesting. We hit the highlights, but could have spent hours here exploring all the toms and sculptures. Highly recommended.

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

You can just show up and go around on your own, or go on the days that English tours are provided free of charge. I think it was on Tuesdays at 11 am., or you can hire a guide. We really didn't need a guide at all. We... More
