This rather ordinary looking building houses another spectacular church, that is open during the day for free visits. However, although photography is allowed, you will be followed around by a priest who discourages you from taking pictures at every opportunity. It might make more sense...More

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
