This is an interesting visit. It is an old cemetery located in Recoleta, next to the artisans fair. This is where the deaths of rich families used to be buried. Some crypts are real art masterpieces.

The title says it all. Even if you don't care about Argentine history, the mausoleums are worth seeing. You can walk around for free, get a tour (there's a free English one at 11am on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but it's a huge group), or buy...More

Beautiful and elaborate sculptures, coffins above the ground and a mysterious atmosphere. Racoleta Cemetery is impressive and makes one reflect about life and enjoying the moment

Extraordinary place it looks like a mini village for the dead. Viewed Eva Peron's grave which was underwhelming for such a public figure but a fascinating place to visit!

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are

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
