Recoleta, Buenos Aires

4.7
Admire the historical buildings and hundreds of statues of Recoleta, an upmarket neighborhood. The quarter became affluent after wealthy families sought refuge there (at the time well outside the city center), fleeing a yellow fever outbreak at the end of the 19th century. Take a stroll through the famous cemetery, home to a vast and varied array of statues, mausoleums, and sepulchers, and the final resting place of Eva Peron. On the neighborhood's streets admire the mixture of European and colonial architectural styles, and stroll through the many leafy spaces and parks, where you'll find yet more statues and sculptures. Visit museums and galleries, and see works by influential Argentine artists and old European masters. Enjoy fine dining, boutique shopping, trendy cafes, and coffee shops, and watch some traditional tango dancing.

  • Being in Buenos Aires and not visiting the Recoleta would be a serious fault, I think there is nowhere else in the world a space of these characteristics. Super recommended

  • This is one of the most conceptual neighborhoods of the Portethe capital. It has everything a good tourist needs to enjoy: Cultural center, Historic cemetery, handicraft fair, parks, bars, restaurants and many chocolate kiosks. In addition, it is close to attractions such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Floralis Generica and etc.
