Recoleta is an upscale residential neighborhood in Buenos Aires, where my wife and I stayed during our visit to that city. The area has interesting historic architecture and is where you’ll find the Recoleta Cemetery and the Nuestra Señora del Pilar Church. Some of the most expensive real estate in Argentina is in Recoleta.
This post is a compilation of some of the sights we encountered during our wanderings around this part of the city. One of these features Pizzurno Palace, also known as the Sarmiento Palace (home to the Ministry of Education).
Recoleta is a place families live and play, with some nice parks and green spaces. There’s some interesting public art and architecture.
