Top ways to experience Gomero de la Recoleta and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.

I wouldn't go out of my way to visit; however, if one is in the area, seeing this tree is worthwhile. They are big trees, and then there are trees that require Atlas to hold up the limbs. Fun to see overall.

A very huge old rubber tree with around 10 meters diameter and some branches more than 30 meters. Well reserved and maintained, some iron struts kept to support some branches and one branch is supported with “El Atlas”. “The Atlas” is a metal statue carrying one branch of the giant tree, it’s made from car parts, representing the “titan of Greek mythology” the man who carries the weight of the world.
There were two old telephone booths and many cafes close by.

The tree and the area worth the visit.

Said to be the biggest, it is truly a magnificent tree and there is a great use of sculpture to support its branches

Located within Recoleta, near the cemetery, stands the oldest tree in Buenos aires, a rubber tree over 200 years old, planted in the days when the area was a plantation.

Wow. This tree is huge. It’s one of the largest and oldest in Buenos Aires and well worth seeing. Area is nice too with nice restaurants. Evita cemetery nearby and the tombs in there are amazing. Small entrance fee.

Just outside the famous Recoleta Cemetary is this massively huge old gum tree. So big many of its wide limbs are held up by several wooden and iron jack posts, often creatively installed (like Atlas holding up a limb).

The park in which this tree sits is also very beautiful. You won't likely "see" the tree as you expect branches everywhere in a park like this. But take a closer look and you'll see it's actually ONE tree.

No, we didn't come here to see the tree (we came to see the cemetery) but while waiting for the rest of our party we explored this park and were so amazed to find this ancient treasure right in the middle of everything.

this is the big dude that you see right across the Recoleta Cemetery. Many tourists taking photos, many bars right next to it. This tree is huge!

The vibe at this park is fun and casual. With dogs playing, people hanging out, taxi drivers chatting and a number of musicians performing. It is a great place to spend a few hours to feel like a local.
