Recoleta Walking Tour
At the beginning of the day, we invite you to take the Free Tour that we offer through Recoleta.
We honestly don’t recommend it just because it’s our product, but because it’s an excellent introduction to the history and culture of the city, and it’s a good kick for time and location. You can check the opinions of our visitors to verify it.

The tour ends at approximately 2 pm at Plaza Alvear, the Recoleta Cemetery Square. If it is Saturday, Sunday or holiday you can enjoy the artisan fair.
