The PALACIO illustrates and pays tribute to THE DIVINE COMEDY written by DANTE ALIGHIERI. This building shows a unique architectural style, mingling the neo-Romanesque and neo-Gothic appearance followed by the dome, with its original hindu design, which belongs to the region of Bhubaneshwar. It represents the tantric union between Dante and Beatrice, both protagonists of The Divine Comedy.

This building is not a Palace in the strict sense of the word but a very intriguing building, which was a result of the imagination of architect Mario Palanti and paid for by Businessman Barolo.

This is one of the two sister buildings. The other one is in Montevideo, Uruguay. The views from the tops are absolutely great!

This may be one of the most interesting and fascinating buildings in the world. Learn its history, the story behind its design as a homage to Dante's "Divine Comedy", and get an unbelieveable nightime panorama of Buenos Aires from the lighthouse 100 meters up.

This fascinating old building, created as a mausoleum and an homage to Dante's Divine Comedy, is not accessible unless you have an appointment at one of its businesses or purchase a guided tour. Tickets are a bit pricey, but the 1-hour tour is definitely worth it! You get to hear fascinating descriptions of the history and architecture, given by a... More

The backstory is what really drew me to this place...coupled with its amazing architecture, of course! But what left a lasting impression was the view of the city from the top. And the lighthouse is tiny but so fun to climb, a truly great experience. My tour guide was awesome too, so informative and fun!

Each time when I am in BA, I go to visit Palacio Barolo. Simply for me this is a must to make elevator tour and take a view from the top on Congreso and Casa de Rosada ... There are also nice stories to hear if you take guided tour.

I was born in Buenos Aires and consider myself a curious person who knows the city very well but I must admit that the visit I paid to this palace some weeks ago was completely jaw dropping! My advice is to take the last Sunday tour to get an awsome view of the city at sunset and the lighthouse is... More

Entrance hall can be visited, no fee to pay. In order to visit the whole building a ticket must be payed, but this includes a guide (available in different languages). It worth taking it!!!

A tip. Look for the guide Eduardo Lazzari on the internet. Ask for a private tour on Sunday at 11am, 1pm, 3pm or 5pm. Fantastic tour. If you wand to do the night tour, from Monday to Saturday.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
