If you are staying in Ricoleta ( very nice and safe area of BA), do NOT MISS this place. Located in a beautiful flower shop on Alvears street(?)....just knock lightly on the door and they will let you in.

Take time to walk down all the small streets - think back to 100 years ago how the rich lived! Don't be fooled you would think that the buildings are 400 years old - not so likely 100 to 120 years young! The rich of BA wanted to demonstrate status and the best way to do so was to copy... More

Recoleta is a must see area while visiting Buenos Aires, the famous cemetery, beautiful buildings and cafes, makes this neighborhood an important part of the history of the city, if you have the opportunity visit the iconic Alvear Palace Hotel you won't be disappointed.

We spent a few hours walking around here. There is a lot to look at and if you like looking at old graveyards you will enjoy this experience

Absolutely worth a visit! It's eery and beautiful all at the same time. There's lots of cats that 'guard' the tombs which are very friendly. Evita is tucked away but quite easy to find if you follow the tour groups. I got a lot out of this without a guide.

Recoleta is a combination of an historic cemetery full of historic meaning, modern shopping and restoration, full of life.

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this 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 also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
