What is Travellers’ Choice?
Tripadvisor gives a Travellers’ Choice award to accommodations, attractions and restaurants that consistently earn great reviews from travellers and are ranked within the top 10% of properties on Tripadvisor.
The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

Just next door to the Recoleta Cemetery this Church grabbed our attention as it stands out in bright white and has a high tower which catches the eye. Pretty impressive interior and some different styles of side altars. Worth a quick detour whilst in the area.

This is an impressive Basilica with a lovely alter. It is worth your time to have a look inside though by most standards it is a small Basilica.

we have travelled a lot and been to many churches... not very memorable.
It was a fixed tour so we didn't have time to visit the cemetary (which you have to pay to enter)

One of the must sees in the Recoleta district. Not as magnificent as the cathedral but it is a great design and is in a brilliant setting

Really lovely church. Well worth a look around. Area is lovely too. With the latest / oldest tree nearby and the cemetery should not be missed either.

At night it is particularly beautiful. Across a park from numerous cafes where you can eat outside. Right by the Recoleta Cemetary.

This is the simple and chic church for the rich and famous. It's very well located. I loved the unpretentious glam vibe.

This beautiful building is located adjacent to the unusual cemetery where many of Argentina's famous are buried. The architecture is unique, and the interior is inspiring.

This church is located to the immediate right of Recoleta Cemetery. There is no fee to enter. It is a white colonial church built by the Franciscans in 1732. It has a Peruvian altar adorned with silver. Inside, head to the left to visit the small but historic cloister museum for a fee where there are good views of Recoleta Cemetery. I would not go out of my way specifically to come here but if you are nearby, it is worth a quick look.
