Site of the Recoleta Cemetery an attraction on its own where many famous Argentinian past presidents and famous people are buried including Eva Peron tomb. The beautiful Basilica Del Pilar church is next to the cementery and dates to the origins of Buenos Aires. Lots of restaurants including the famous La... More

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.

Great shops, cafes, restaurants and art galleries. Shops are a little pricey. Safe and people are friendly.

As most reviewers have stated, this area of Buenos Aires is a beautiful place to stroll. Gorgeous architecture, nice restaurants, tree lined streets, but please beware! My husband and I have traveled all over the world without any incidents of crime. We pay attention to warnings, stay in areas deemed safe, and have our wits about us at all times.... More

I would definitely add to your "do not miss" list while in Buenos Aires. I was blown away by the effort that went into celebrating the loved ones of the people entombed here. We photographed the tomb of Eva Duarte, wife of Juan Peron....Incredibly interesting and an awesome cultural experience.

This neighborhood starts approximately at the end of Av. 9 de Julio, close to the road that gets to the Airport. It is very traditional full of beautiful apartment building, cafes and restaurants. You can go walking from Av. 9 de Julio passing through Recoleta and their famous cemetery up to the Floralis Generica Monument.

A good place to stay with lots of eating options and easy access to the downtown and the sights. The cemetery is as interesting as people say and there are some excellent museums.

Worth a visit, it is a beautiful place. I can't imagine how huge these monuments have been built for some of these people.

On most of my 40+ visits to Buenos Aires, I visit the old barrio/quarter of Recoleta (BA’s most upscale neighborhood) for either fine dining, a leisure lunch, or a Sunday stroll and see the tourist items being sold on the park lawns opposite the church. This used to be the leading tourist area, but has slipped a little with the... More

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.
