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.

  • good to visit La Recoleta, exclusive neighborhood in Buenos Aires involves a visit to the cemetery. It is the first time that I am in my life a visit of this kind. I have traveled a lot and I think that this should not be an attraction for visitors, more when they lie thousands of people that it has nothing to do with the "famous" there dwell. I believe that these for their influence on the people should this located on other sites. The cemetery itself is not wrong most interesting Church

  • A very nice area of Buenos Aires with a beautiful European architecture. Going to Buenos Aires you should not know this neighborhood and have a good time.

  • For me one of the best neighborhoods of the Capital. May have been the most senior in the past, but it still has its charm and its level! Buildings that are icons, palaces, etc. For years I live in this area and would cost me much change. A neighborhood to meet and enjoy!

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
