About the tour

Come to our Free Tour Retiro and Cemetery of Recoleta and you will be able to know one of the most famous and touristic neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, where you will be surprised by the cultural eclecticism of its monuments. You will also discover the most opulent cemetery in the city. On this tour you will discover the most elegant and sophisticated neighborhood in Buenos Aires through our guided tour in Spanish, where you can see the most impressive and European monuments in the city. We will see the Monumental Tower, which was initially called the English Tower, since it was donated by the United Kingdom to commemorate the centenary of Argentine independence. You will be surprised by the love-hate relationship between Argentina and the United Kingdom, since in the 19th century the British Empire financed the Argentine railways but in the 20th century they went to war over the Falkland Islands. You will also be surprised by the French stamp in this neighborhood, due to the strong immigration of French people in the 19th century. You will stroll through the Pacific Galleries that evoke Le Bon Marché in Paris, one of the first department stores in the world, but inside it imitates the interior streets of the Víctor Manuel II Gallery in Milan. We will tell you the story of the Argentine Pavilion built on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of Paris in 1898, which was disassembled piece by piece to raise it again on the other side of the pond. In addition, in our Recoleta Cemetery and Retreat Free Tour we will see the contrast of these buildings of European influence with the rationalist buildings of the 20th century, such as the Kavanagh Building. Finally, we will visit the Recoleta Cemetery, one of the most beautiful in the world, with luxurious mausoleums of influential personalities such as that of Eva Perón herself.
