The PALACIO illustrates and pays tribute to THE DIVINE COMEDY written by DANTE ALIGHIERI. This building shows a unique architectural style, mingling the neo-Romanesque and neo-Gothic appearance followed by the dome, with its original hindu design, which belongs to the region of Bhubaneshwar. It represents the tantric union between Dante and Beatrice, both protagonists of The Divine Comedy.

It is a nice way to spend around an hour. It is a beautiful building. An old fashion lift will take you to the top where you can enjoy the views from BA. The person at the top is very helpful and if you ask him, he will give you a bit of information about buildings around

It is a building such as this where you can easily see the European influence on Buenos Aires. Quite a stunning landmark as you wander down the street. Impressive once you enter and admire the beauty, even if you just remain on the ground floor foyer. We didn't do the guided tour, need to leave some things undone to ensure... More

For architecture lovers and enthusiasts of Dante's Divine Comedy the Palacio Barolo is an incredible place! And for all the others, the amazing view other the city from the top and the lighthouse is reason enough to join the guided tour. Moreover, the guide was amicable and translated into English whenever I couldn't follow in Spanish.

We visited this working office building which was built as a homage to Dante's Inferno and with references to Masonic traditions so lots of architectural details to look out for which you would never notice unless you do the guided tour. There are tours for up to 20 people at a time, fairly regularly in English and Spanish and you... More

This is one building tour you should not miss. The building has 17 floors with a lift to the 14th. Our tour guide was multi-lingual and very good. You must [if you can] climb the circular steps to the lighthouse at the top. The views of BA city from the outside balconies at that level are breath-taking [ remember your... More

Tour starts at 8pm, 350 pesos. Explore this amazing building patterned after Dante work of the divine comedy, depicting hell, purgatory, and heaven. Once the tallest building in B.A. You wind your way to the top of the lighthouse with a very informative Argentina guide. Amazing views. Tour lasts 2 hours with the last 30 min. Full of surprises. Highly... More

The best experience I had in Buenos Aires. The day was perfect, so we could even spot the coast of Uruguai. Look for the small house at the top of one building. Moreover, the guides were great. Don't miss it and it's better to book in advance.

A very interesting building, full of history and great architecture. Take the guided tour to access to the lighthouse at the very top for breathtaking views of a grand city: Buenos Aires.

this is the second time I've taken this tour. the building is super unique and the small stairs leading to the lighthouse are exciting. you actually get to sit in the light house for a while before heading back down.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
