Owner description: This fashionable, upscale neighborhood is lined with cafes, boutiques and galleries and morphs into a street fair on weekends.

I especially loved the Recoleta cemetery when I visited BA over 12 years ago. Returning this Sept. 2012 was a treat, albeit the vibe overall in BA feels different. Perhaps it's the impact of inflation, government corruption, and the increase in crime. Nevertheless weI felt relatively safe walking around at night, and the elegant Recoleta area felt particularly secure. We stayed at the boutique hotel Mio Buenos Aires and had a great experience there. It's literally a two minute walk from Recoleta cemetery and the Basilica Nuestra Senora del Pilar, and Plaza Francia where all the cafes are situated. In the Plaza there's a lovely fair on the weekend with live music and art vendors selling their goods. There are great restaurants to consider; Fervor on Posadas and their sister restaurant for Spanish food, El Burladero on Pte. J.E. Uriburu. Try El SanJuanino for authentic locra...also on Posadas, right next to Fervor. For amazing, but expensive Italian food we dined at Piegari, near the Four Seasons hotel. Walk down Callao to visit the famous jazz club Notorious We had a fun evening there.....not spectacular (my novio is a jazz musician and coming from NYC the standard is hard to beat) but it's a good time out taking in good music. Nearby is the famed El Cuartito for amazing pizza. It's a 5 minute walk from Teatro Colon which is a must see! Overall a wonderful stay and Recoleta was a terrific home base.

As much as people say there is a lot of crime in BA, I stayed in Recoleta and didn't feel at risk. I walked home from Palermo a couple times in the middle of the night and was not bothered. Of course common sense and not wearing flashy items helps. The area is very pretty with a lot of European flare. I found it to be really central to everything from Palermo to Puerto Madera and so on.

Full of history and some quite substantial mausoleums, Recoleta is definitely worth a visit. Of course, most people go to see the final resting place of Eva Peron, but there is much more as well.

This very famous neighborhood is beautiful and resides in the heart of the city. You can visit the cemetery where Evita and many other famous names are. For a walk and coffee/lunch break.

Recoleta Cemetary is an eerie, unique and overwhelming experience. So much history in such a small space.
