Palacio Barolo, Buenos Aires

(4.5/5 based on 1,700+ 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.

  • When we went to Congress have been through here, if you look at the sky the building draws attention for being different. We meet the entrance hall, the same for a very different characteristics. From what I noticed there are several types of visitations Visitations of 1 to 3 hours.

  • Palacio Barolo is an office building that is part of the Avenida de Mayo. The history and architecture is very linked to the Divine Comedy of Dante Alghieri

  • An excellent tour with guide Veronica of the Barolo Palace! A review of the history lesson about the Divine Comedy and the importance of the construction of this building in the recent history of Buenos Aires! A fantastic view of the city! Recommend and come back!

  • Wonderful people for a wonderful building in a very good shape. We were just two in our tour (so, it was private), our guide was super friendly and we got to see every square centimeter of the building, alone! She spoke slowly so that I could translate in French to my mother every sentence. Take the early morning tour 10AM, it is the best because no one take them! Thank you very much for that great morning!
  • Wonderful building. Lovely and ineresting tour. Amazing views.
  • Muy lindo edificio
  • An iconic building from Buenos Aires. Try to visit the lighthouse in the roof!
  • 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.
