Recoleta, Buenos Aires

4.7
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.

  • Nice place to walk. Very close has the sculpture, which looks like a pink bud, which opens in the sun and closes at night. Crossing the track you will find a fair of local items and the cemetery, which is very beautiful inside. Leaving the cemetery has several good restaurants.

  • It is worth strolling through the streets, discovering new corners and coffee shops with delicious delicacies. At lunchtime a good request is to choose the dish of the day, which comes with starter, main course and dessert + coffee with better price than the other options of the menu.
