Jorge Luis Borges once said: “Argentineans are Italians who speak Spanish, think in French, and would like to be English.” On our Free Tour of Retiro and Recoleta we will explore the most sophisticated area of a capital so European in appearance and style, you can’t help but feel as if you’re walking down the streets from the old continent.

Discover how the wealthy 19th century bourgeoisie made an effort to “Europeanise” the city, materialising projects of great magnitude such as the Argentinean Pavilion or the Monumental Tower, which is made only of British materials shipped across the ocean.

Walk through French shopping galleries built in imitation of the Bon Marche of Paris, but which copy the structure of the indoor streets of the Galleria Victor Emmanuel II of Milano. Admire the buildings and impressive rationalist architecture. Finish the tour at the famous Recoleta Cemetery, one of the most beautiful in the world were you’ll be able to see mausoleums of some of the most famous individuals who called Argentina their home, including the mausoleum of Evita Perón.

On our Tour of Retiro and Recoleta you will doubt over which side of the Atlantic you are on. Enjoy the most elegant and sophisticated Latin-American capital of all!

"My tour guide was amazing"

5/5 stars

My tour guide was amazing - huge thank you to Pablo for telling me all about the surrounding buildings and landmarks. His attention to detail and knowledge of facts pertaining to each location that we stopped at was very nice. There weren't a lot of people which was also nice.

"Pablo gave a great tour!"

5/5 stars

Pablo gave a great tour! He was very knowledgeable and told good stories about the history of the people and the place. He took time to answer questions, even staying later to start talking about the history of tango. We’ve done a lot of free tours and this one was one of the best!
