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.

  • Amazing architecture, incredible views from the top. The tour itself was very informative. Recommend going around sunset, makes everything even more majestic. Probably one of our favourite things in B...  more »
  • Make the daytime tour to the Palace along with my family and we were amazed with all the history that holds his homage to Dante's Divine Comedy. The visit lasts about an hour and a half and is spectacular views from the balconies of the last story as the final trek to the viewpoint through some narrow stairs. Highly recommended to visit and take into account go with clothes comfortable and slippers because climb about six floors, very traquilos in any case. As criticism which has a bathroom on the ground floor and to enter you have to ask the keys in the same place where charge entry, this should improve since many foreigners also attend and take a bad image

  • 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!

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
