Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the

neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos

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