Discover the streets and monuments of one of the most stately and imposing neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires with this free tour of La Recoleta.
La Recoleta Free Walking Tour
The tour meets in the morning near to the Colón Theatre, an elegant, Italian style building, which serves as the prelude to the coming three and a half hours around the stunning La Recoleta.
From here we begin our free tour, diving into the distinguished heart of the neighbourhood, known as the Argentinian Paris for the huge influx of French immigrants who settled here in the 19th century.
Along with an expert guide, we'll discover the important role this area had in creating Buenos Aires as the epicentre of Latin America, as we marvel at the stunning architecture on show in buildings such as the Templo Libertad Synagogue, the Torre de los Ingleses, the Palacio Anchorena, Kavanagh Building or the Avenida Alvear palaces.
Our free tour of La Recoleta will also take in some of the liveliest squares in the city, such as Plaza de San Martín or Plaza Francia. It will be just here that we finish our guided tour, in front of the famous La Recoleta cemetery, where famous Argentinians such as Eva Perón rest in peace.
