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
Definitely worth a visit when in Buenos Airies. It is free and like a mini city inside. There was a line to walk by Eva Peron's gravesite (her maiden name is Duarte and that is where she is). Other interesting stories as well - we...More
This is not your typical cemetery! It's a village of tiny houses for your departed ancestors. The mausoleums & crypts vary much in age, architectural style, maintenance, furnishings, materials & size. Some older ones have developed a special patina & are well loved & maintained....More
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.
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.
