Back to Buenos Aires – Recoleta, Palermo y Belgrano!

Recoleta, Palermo, and Belgrano are neighborhoods of Buenos Aires and are known for housing some of the ritzier areas with beautiful architecture, 5 star hotels and restaurants, lots of boutique-y shopping, and tons of green space. Of these neighborhoods, we found Palermo to be the most upscale/affluent, but enjoyed the eccentric atmosphere of Recoleta the most.

This giant flower sculpture in a park north of the cemetery actually opens and closes with the rising and setting of the sun!

GRAN Gomero tree – planted in 1791, now more than 50 meters wide!

Buller Brewing Co

This brewery has won a lot of local awards and has a great balcony overlooking the cemetery!
Best stout we have had yet! Nitro! (They use random taphandles for their beer – see New Belgium?)

Rodi Bar – Parrilla

The BEST Chocolate mousse for dessert (so good David actually said he wanted to drink it so I made him pose) and limoncello! My first time trying it. Mmm!

El Ateneo Grand Splendid

The grandest bookstore!

Palermo’s “green belt”

Memoria – Monumento a las Víctimas del Terrorismo de Estado Park

This park on the bay in Belgrano is dedicated to the victims of the military dictatorship of the 70’s-80’s aka The Dirty War.
