Many people will miss this out when visiting the cemetary, but it is deffinately worth a visit. Nicely ornate inside, small, but beautiful. Dating from 1732, and the second oldest in the city.

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

turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
