Cementerio de la Recoleta
Known as the city of the dead, prepare to be awed as you meander through the 6400 statues, coffins and crypts of the Cementerio de la Recoleta. Home to countless memorials of Argentina’s rich and famous – including that of the iconic Eva Perón – the eerily tranquil streets boast striking gothic architecture and charming archways. Whether you explore this fascinating cemetery alone, or join a free and informative walking tour, you are guaranteed a unique glimpse into Argentina’s vibrant history.

The Great Outdoors
Alongside its countless museums, stunning architecture and fiery nightlife, Buenos Aires is proud home to some gloriously green spaces. Feel the sunshine on your face as you stroll through the pretty parklands of Bosques de Palermo; read a book in the Garden of the Poets, smell the sweet scent of the Rose Garden, or cycle around the shimmering ponds. Alternatively, the stunning 350-hectare Costanera Sur nature reserve is perfect for a touch of bird spotting, a walking tour, or an afternoon picnic.

Sports
No Argentinian adventure is complete without a trip to the country’s iconic La Bombonera, stadium of the Boca Juniors. A unique architectural wonder, praised by none other than Diego Maradona, the stadium is in a distinctive ‘D’ shape, offering unrivalled acoustics and a wonderful experience. Alternatively, the Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti is the largest stadium in Argentina, home to the country’s iconic national football team. Horses are also central to the city’s sport, with exhilarating races at the Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo, as well as the thrilling polo season, beginning in mid-September.

Dining
A nation renowned for their love of flavoursome food, expect an unforgettable culinary discovery on your trip to Buenos Aires. Think juicy, tender steaks infused with Mediterranean flavours, sizzling on a traditional Argentine barbecue. Beyond the country’s unrivalled meat, their sweet treats are equally special; sample classic Dulche de Leche in a variety of delicious cakes, ice cream and crepes. For fine dining in Buenos Aires, the Alvear Palace is home to the stunning La Bourgogne Restaurant, boasting a refined French menu from Relais & Chateaux chef, Jean Paul Boundoux.

Culture
Experience the eclectic Argentinian culture in the country’s fiery capital city. Visit the Centro Cultural Kirchner, a renovated central post office, housing numerous galleries and the world class Ballena Azul concert hall. Take a trip to the distinctive Casa Rosada, home to the president’s office and the balcony from which Eva Perón made her iconic speech in 1951. Muse at the masterpieces of Argentina’s finest artists at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, or discover the city’s glorious and celebrated urban street art.
