The area is lovely, lots of green. Safe to walk about. Close to Embassies. Lot's of small cafe, park . Just a very lovely neighbourhood. Easy access from the waterfront with taxi's and buses around. Hop on the open roof tour bus to have a better view

Visit on a Sunday when the craft market is just downhill from the graveyard. Eva Peron's grave is something to seek as is the devotion she still attracts. Have a wander around the rest of the cemetery, say hello to the grizzly looking cats and guess at what horrors lie downstairs in those crypts.

While walking through its streets, you feel like being in Paris, right here in South America!! The buildings, cafes, trees....Go there and check for yourself! You will be amazed too!!

Really beautiful place and nice to be slightly out of main Buenos Aires. Cemetery has some amazing graves but was a little eery.

We enjoyed our hotel in the Recoleta area and found the cemetery to be most interesting and requiring a good amount of time to fully appreciate all the tombs and gravestones.
