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.

Palacio Barolo Reviews
We walked past this building on Christmas Day 2019. It looked majestic on the outside. Wish there were some details on whether an inside look is possible. Other than that, not much to add. more »
Fir sure the pakace is very interesting but to see it the entrance fee is so expensive. 1100 ars for the visit, or 550 ars for the voucher to go to the bar at 14 floor. more »
Quite a story of Italian Diligence, bringing to new generations the imponderable mysteries of The Divine Comedy. More a monument than a palace. Good tour is discounted for Argentinian student or senior with ID.
Great views, interesting background, but nothing you can't get from Wikipedia. The tour is a bit overpriced for basically, a great view, an office view from the 20s, and going up to the claustrophobic light tower, with a free lemonade at the end. Time would be better spent in a park. The prices were also just recently introduced. The pictures contain pretty much everything you'll see.
