The ritzy Recoleta neighborhood draws visitors in the numbers for a wander through Buenos Aires’ up-market residential streets and public parks.

For most visitors, the main attraction is the Recoleta Cemetery, an ornate necropolis so large it’s like a mini city of states and marble sarcophagi. One of the most famous tombs is that of Eva Peron (Evita).

The enclave also attracts thousands of people for its weekend crafts market, held on Plaza Francia outside the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar.

Museums and art galleries, lovely plazas and parklands are another feature of Recoleta.

Practical Info

The Recoleta neighborhood is in the northwest of central Buenos Aires, a few blocks from the Callao underground station.
