This is an area with so many fancy buildings and so many of them being embassies now. The statues here also tell a compelling story of the elite class of the golden age of Argentina in late 19th century and early 20th century.

Recoleta with its interesting cemetery, weekend fairs in Plaza Francia, the Cultural Center, stately mansions, and museums is a must visit. Floralis Generica is a sculpture worth visiting nearby.

Perhaps a little macabre - but we found the cemetery absolutely fascinating. We went with an experienced guide which I would say is essential. A thoroughly different experience.
