Recoleta, Buenos Aires

(4.7/5 based on 16,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Recoleta and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Buenos Aires travel itinerary maker.

  • This is a nice cemetery to visit if you are interested in the Eva Peron story. I would recommend going with a guide who will give you details of the story and take you to the grave site.  more »
  • So many times I went to Baires, and did not know Recoleta! It is a beautiful area, you can't stop going to walk, beautiful architecture, and very safe to walk at night. Thank you
