Palacio Barolo, Buenos Aires

(4.5/5 based on 1,800+ 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.

  • Imposing building, preferably know it in guided tour, superb construction of the architect MARIO PALANTI at the request of its owner LUIS BAROLO, and in honor of a great who was Dante Alighieri.

  • You have the best view of the city from the roof of this building. Beautiful, full of references to Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, the Palace has three parts, as well as the work of Dante: Hell, purgatory and heaven. To reach heaven we must strive but really worth!

  • The tour was one of the best I've ever done, you can experience all the history of the Palace as it explores the inside. We were able to take pictures with historical hats and our wine and snacks at the end of the visit. Also called the lighthouse at night, which was a plus. The view from the top is breathtaking. Our guide was the Ana which we answered so exceptional.

  • 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.
