Known as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Buenos Aires, the Recoleta Cemetery is the final resting place for some of Argentina's most prominent families. A trip to the cemetery is not complete until Eva Peron's gravesite is found. One of the most beloved figures in Argentine history, Evita, is probably the most visited grave in the whole cemetery, and all of Argentina. The grave is difficult to find, hidden amongst the 6,400 tombs in the graveyard town, so just look out for flowers and a large congregation of people taking photos. - Alexandra Lazar

After an exhaustive and careful restoration of this beautiful 1919 theater, the biggest bookstore in Latin America opened in what used to be the old Grand Splendid cinema. Without altering the old structure—twinned with the Opera de Paris theatre—it still has its original features and magnificent friezes, like the one on the spectacular dome. There is now a cafeteria in place of the stage, where you can read books taken from the bookshelves. There are also reading places on the corners of the main floor and in the old balconies on the first floor, furnished with tables and comfortable armchairs, computers for searching or online purchasing and an area dedicated to children, 'El Ateneo Junior', with interactive games and storytelling. There is also a small music stage, CDs and DVDs for sale, art exhibitions on the third floor and facilities for watching DVDs.
