Highly recommended if you want to experience the history of BA in terms of heritage, culture and revolutions. A good hour and a half can be spent in this stunning pace. I would recommend that a guide can help make the most of your visit....More

I visited the cemetery with my mother and it certainly should be a pit stop you make as you walk around Buenos Aires City. I really enjoyed looking through the old buildings and the graves (be sure to take lots of photos). The main person...More

I visited the cementery with my teenage kids -14,17 & 19-. Both them and I loved it. Great place to visit, right in the downtown area. The visitor can have a brief idea of the Argentina of last century with the stories of the families...More

Interestingly it is not macabre or depressing. It is more like a design and architecture tour. And it doesn't get old. We take a quick visit every time we are in town.

Yep, this place really is as impressive as they say. The cemetery is a bit on the smaller side compared to some of the vast spacious places you might find in Paris or Brooklyn. Instead what you get are single, dare I say two-story buildings...More

Recoleta is a beautiful cementery that looks like an outdoor museum. It’s full of art and history. We did the self guided tour and were able to learn a ton but I imagine you can learn more in one of their free guided tours.

Take the line H (yellow one) to Las Heras. From there it is a short walk to the cementery. For further information about public transportation download the app ‘Como Llego’, it’s very helpful.
