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.
I have never been to a cemetery like this before! You can buy a map for 40 pesos (worth doing) or there are guides that you can pay to take you around. We used the map and found our own way, you can spend a good hour here looking at all the family mausoleums, made of marble, with impressive statues....
This church is located next to the Recoleta cemetery. It's altar is an amazing collection of baroque carvings, and the side altars have an intriguing mix of old and new saints (including Mother Teresa). Pay 30 pesos to check out the cloisters, which are up some narrow stairs on the left side of the church. They have some historical information...

"Beautiful buildings, too many black remarks sprayed on it"
reviewed 4 weeks ago by Joseph L
This Faculty, like the Law Faculty are beautiful examples of such buildings. Unfortunately too many stupid people spray with blacvk aerosols stupid remanrks that only distract the viewer. Perhaps they will day stop their idiotic actions and we can all enjoy the real, clean buildings. Well worth a visit!
"Fantastic food and service but choose your own wine"
reviewed 1 week ago by paul c
Probably one of the best meals we have ever had. Three courses, each one bursting with flavours . We were so lucky to drop in without a reservation on a Tuesday night and get a table with only a 15 minute wait. The service was fantastic, largely down to Stephany who spoke great English ( as our Spanish was somewhat...
Loved the entire experience offered by Dan and Henry. Unique culinary experience matched with wonderful wines. Liz, Cynthia and I loved the wonderful conversations with others at the table, sharing experiences and perspectives on life. Definitely reserve well in advance. Great to experience a puerta cerrada restaurant in BA.

Rapanui? What, are we in Easter Island? No. Rapanui is this amazing gelato and chocolate shop in Buenos Aires. This wonderful slice of heaven on earth was begun by Aldo Fenoglio from Italy and perfected his family tradition of making the best handmade chocolate. The tradition was transmitted from generation to generation until they emigrated to BA and brought their...
It is the second time that we stay at Alvear. We Stayed at the same two rooms; concidence or not; it may us feel 'at home'. The Lobby bar is fantastic. Breakfast is very nice as well. Very goog service and conciergery.
The hotel is located in residential and yet central area of Buenos Aires walking distance from main attractions and parks.
The service is excellent and helpful.
Breakfast is varied and with local fresh ingredients and products.
The restaurants in the garden separating the two main buildings the Duhao home and the new bruising are both of high quality standards.

The hotel is very nice. Personal very helpful and pleasant . The room is huge and bed very comfortable. THE highlight is the restaurant downstairs! I believe they changed name and/or owner from last year. The way that sommelier SEBASTIAN manages the place with his smiling staff is phenomenal ! We spent two evenings there enjoyed the ambiance, the food...
