Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Capital Federal District / Buenos Aires / Recoleta
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. By using our Buenos Aires trip itinerary builder app, you can arrange your visit to Recoleta and other attractions in Buenos Aires.

Interesting architecture. Shops and people to check out and to just watch. My wife and I walked around for exercise and sightseeing during the day and at night.
