Recoleta Cemetery Buenos Aires. It's not very often that a Cemetery would feature as a touristy must-see, but the necropolis at Recoleta is an astonishing exception to the rule. Recoleta is Buenos Aires ritziest and wealthiest neighborhood, with superb old mansions along the Avenida Alvear. Nowhere is this elitism better displayed than at the resting ground of the rich and famous at the Recoleta Cemetery. Email: Bob Frassinetti. Art Dealer & Journalist.
