Done an evening tour with these guys - informative and with snacks at the end. To be honest, I really only went for the views and they were 100% worth it, given the clear evening we had. The views across all over BA are simply spectacular.

El Palacio Barolo, built on the epic poem by Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy, attempts to represent the three stages of travel of the soul through Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise or Heaven. This is expressed in the wonderful sculptures, paintings and decorations throughout the building. Although it is still for private use, there are tours that charge a nominal fee.... More

Great tour to hear all the history but if you hate heights give the lighthouse at the very top a big miss!,

This is truly an impressive building and well worth the visit, if only for the climb to the very top of it in the lighthouse. The view on BA from there is fantastic and you can make wonderful panoramic pictures. The guided tour is interesting but a bit limited as, besides the Dante/Mason story about the building, there is not... More

This building is so beautiful that I can spend hours just looking at it. It was designed with Dante's Divine Comedy in mind. The 22-story building is divided into 3 sections. Basement and ground floor are hell. Floors 1-14 are purgatory and 15-22 are heaven and the lighthouse on top can be seen from Montevideo, Uruguay, And guess what??Palacio Barolo... More

If you want to get a whole picture of BsAs, just go to Palacio Barolo. In addition a building is interesting with its history and architecture.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
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.
