I recently had the pleasure of joining Chiara for a guided tour of Recoleta in Buenos Aires, and it was an exceptional experience. Chiara's deep knowledge of the area's history and her engaging storytelling brought the neighborhood to life in a way I hadn't anticipated. From the iconic Recoleta Cemetery to the beautiful architecture and hidden gems, every part of the tour was fascinating. Chiara's passion for the city is evident, and she made the tour both informative and enjoyable. I highly recommend her tour to anyone looking to explore Buenos Aires in depth!

Silvia's Walking-Tour durch Buenos Aires was simply fascinating! Her profound knowledge and passion for the history of Argentine women, who have shaped the identity of our country as rebels, fighters, thinkers, and transgressors, were clearly evident. During the tour, Silvia led us to the city's most significant sites, including the impressive Women's Bridge, the emblematic Plaza de Mayo, and the imposing Metropolitan Cathedral. Her tales of spies, saints, forbidden lovers, and heroines captivated us from beginning to end. Of particular note was the story of Juana Azurduy de Padilla, a Latin American guerrilla leader in the fight against the Spaniards, who is regarded as one of the most famous freedom fighters of the South American Wars of Independence. Overall, Silvia's tour was an unforgettable experience that not only brought us closer to the history of Argentina but also provided a deep insight into the inspiring stories and achievements of Argentine women. She was attentive to our questions and needs. We highly recommend this tour and thank Silvia for her expertise and warm demeanor!

ORIGIN OF THE CITY: Historic Center, where it all began.

Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and the second largest city in South America.
This city has many attractions to offer. It is also one of the safest cities in Latin America. There are many hotels, restaurants and cafes that can satisfy the needs of any tourist.
The city is also famous for its tango dancing. Tango was born in Buenos Aires and can be found everywhere in this city, from museums to restaurants and street shows.
The best time to visit Buenos Aires is from December to March, when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold.
Buenos Aires has a lot to offer and especially some of its most famous neighbourhoods, such as Recoleta. To make sure you don't miss a single detail, there is nothing better than a professional guide on one of the Free Tours of Recoleta in Buenos Aires, like the ones we offer here at GuruWalk.
The Recoleta neighbourhood is one of the most visited places in Buenos Aires. It is a popular tourist destination due to its many cultural attractions and the final resting place of famous people.
The Recoleta Cemetery was established in 1822 as a public cemetery for all citizens. The cemetery has been designated a national historic monument and houses the graves of many notable Argentine historical figures, including Eva Perón, Presidents Domingo Faustino Sarmiento and Juan Bautista Alberdi, General José de San Martín and Nobel Prize winners Carlos Gardel, Jorge Luis Borges, and Adolfo Pérez Esquivel.
The Libertad Synagogue is located in the Recoleta neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. It was built in 1913 and is an example of Moorish Revival architecture. The building's design was influenced by the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain.
The Torre de los Ingleses is a neo-Gothic tower in the Recoleta neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. It was built in 1894 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the second British invasion of Buenos Aires.
The tower is located at the intersection of Avenida del Libertador and Avenida Pueyrredón, near Plaza Francia and Plaza Once de Septiembre. It was designed by architect Francisco Tamburini as a replica of London's Big Ben.
The Kavanagh Building is an example of Belle Époque architecture.
Built in 1912 by architect Alejandro Christophersen and commissioned by Irish-born businessman and politician John Patrick Kavanagh (1841-1917), the building has been a National Historic Landmark since 2001.
The building currently houses a series of offices and flats. The ground floor is occupied by a shopping centre with cafes, restaurants and other amenities.
