Palacio Barolo, Buenos Aires

4.5
Survey the streets of Buenos Aires from a lighthouse atop Palacio Barolo, a 22-storey building designed by Italian architect Mario Palanti. The landmark, which at the time of its construction in 1923 was the tallest in the city, now houses shops, offices, and studios. Constructed in tribute to Dante's "Divine Comedy," the building features a concrete facade and three distinct sections representing heaven, purgatory, and hell (we assume the offices are in the "hell" section). Climb to the top of the iconic palace to enjoy dramatic views over the city. Make Palacio Barolo a centerpiece of your Buenos Aires vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Buenos Aires visit planner.

  • From the hand of the same architect as the Palacio Salvo in Montevideo, Mario Palanti. Difficult to compare due to the position in the street and the different functions of the towers. Quite a climb t...  more »
  • On my second visit in Buenos Aires scheduled a visit to the Palace. It was one of the improvements choices, fantastic place with an amazing story. The tour provides a guided tour in a few stories with a context that explains how it was so planned the construction of the same. The view from the top of the Palace is impressive, but it's not everyone who can get to the end, a very narrow staircase and a small part of the sacrifice to marvel at the view from the gazebo. It takes up a few floors down (I think about 4 or 5 floors), go prepared. Do not forget to visit you can see from above the square of Congress, Casa Rosada and other important points.

  • Went on a 1.5 hour tour to learn more about the history of the building and see the architectural details of the place. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and does both Spanish and English tour. Also get to go to the tower to enjoy an aerial view of the city. Definitely worth a visit!
  • I'm trying to educate you, to broaden your minds. I know you're not open to epiphany not religious or insight not preordained. At least you will know what you labor so hard to harm. A friend of mine once called me una cucaracha. I can endure anything.
  • Great views of Buenos Aires!! The tour was just ok...
  • It is one of the landmark in BA. It's a good place for you to see the night view in BA. That;s really beautiful!
  • Historical building! Was one of the tallest buildings in Latin America during some good years. They have daily visits and noturno guides. Also some of them you can access to tango shows or wine tasting. Just take a look in their website!
