Many areas of BA are not safe to walk in but Recoleta is heavily patrolled. The streets are clean and locals flock to its mall, al fresco restaurants and bars and famous monuments - like Eva Peron's mausoleum in the walled cemetery. It is a happy place not far from the domestic airport or cruise ship terminal.

A great place to walk. Tree-lined streets and fabulous architecture.Lots of cafes to rest in. High-end stores and all the foreign consulates. If you are a bride player, there is a great club that has a game almost every night.

Recoleta is central to everything. You can walk to most places comfortably if you are fit and able. There are many fabulous restaurants and bars nearby and the famous Recoleta Cemetery is part of this enchanting District. On Saturdays and Sundays there is also a fabulous market where we found some interesting local homemade crafts and jewellery. We would not... More

This area benefits from old planning and buildings to suit so that it has an upmarket but calm feel. All the interesting stuff is walkable.Of course the Cemetry and Art museum cannot be missed

It is worth walking through the graveyards and monuments of this amazing cemetery of Recoleta, whether in thunder, lightning, or in rain.

Nice area. See the crazy huge trees in the park across from the markets, go to the Recoleta markets on Saturday and visit the cemetery where Eva Peron is entombed. Then go to the markets in San Telmo on Sunday (San Telmo markets only operate on Sundays from about 10 or 11am until 6pm). In Recoleta markets, you'll find handmade... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
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.
