4.5/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web
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. Put Palacio Barolo into our Buenos Aires tour planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Buenos Aires.

  • Worth organizing to accompany the tour. Tells the story of the architecture of the building, totally inspired in Dante's Inferno (number of floors, offices, location of doors Windows and light fixtures). There is a subidinha of some floors by stairs, to the lighthouse. There are several stops for panoramic photos. Just get a few minutes before and buy the ticket in the hall.

  • Beautiful monument historic and very nice view, very good explanation of the guides (dynamic and clear). I suggest be physical able to climb stairs and not to be afraid of heights to enjoy travel. It is recommended to learn more to near the town of BS AS.

  • A building model in the center of the city on the av. de Mayo recommended place to learn about its history (I recommend making guided tours) is economical if you come from abroad, especially if they then think about go to Uruguay and meet the twin building, both extremely attractive, 100% recommended

  • Muy lindo edificio
  • An iconic building from Buenos Aires. Try to visit the lighthouse in the roof!
  • Beautiful building inspired by The Divine Comedy, excellent guided tour. Reservations are required. The building is a few steps from the Saenz Peña subway station on line A.
  • Must see classical office building from 1923 completely inspired by Dante Alighieri's Divina Comedia. Guided tours from Monday to Saturday (except Tuesdays) in the morning and afternoon. Also possible to visit at night for a higher fee from Wednesday to Saturday at 8 pm with a Tango show included in the entertainment on Wednesday and classical music on the other nights. Amazing views of the city center from the lighthouse on top.
  • The tour was really good. The tour guide was full of enthusiasm. The building, however, needs more TLC...
