Private Walking Tour of Recoleta district (Includes Recoleta Cemetery)
Duration: 3 hours
Availability: Every day of the week
Tour Type: Private Tour
This walking tour is the best way to experience the grandest neighborhood of Buenos Aires and possibly the most remarkable cemetery of the world.
Explore one of the most luxurious neighborhoods in Buenos Aires as we delve into the personalities, scandals, and institutions that have made it so legendary. While emphasizing the Gilded Age, our tour will discuss the evolution of the area from the late 18th century farmland through the early 19th century development and ultimately its “discovery” by the Porteño elites.
The tour includes a guided visit inside the Recoleta Cemetery, one of the "must see" attractions when visiting Buenos Aires. The cemetery’s 60,000 sq m are organised into squares, which are divided by wide, tree-lined avenues flanked by marble mausoleums of different architectural styles. Argentina’s most illustrious sons and daughters (presidents, writers, scientists, artists and founding fathers of the country) are all buried here. Among the most venerated tombs is that of Eva Duarte, otherwise known as Evita Perón
