We saw this building during our walk on the Avenida de Mayo while on our 4-day visit of Buenos Aires. We entered the building and were impressed by the beautiful columns and ceiling. Asking the Security Guard, we learned that it is only open to the public one day a week, on Thursdays. Because we were leaving before Thursday, we... More

I highly recommend a visit to Palacio Barolo. The tour is both in English and Spanish. There is a lighthouse at the top of the building which offers wonderful panoramic views of Buenos Aires! Keep in mind you have to climb a very narrow staircase to reach the lighthouse.

Do the night tour. So worth the cost to see the beautiful structure and then up to the lighthouse for a panoramic view of Buenos Aires. The wine is good too

we did the daytime tour, which the guide offered in English and Spanish. Very interesting to learn about the history/architecture of the building. You also have an opportunity to go to a landing at the top to see some amazing views of the city, and then even higher to the light of the lighthouse.

This is a perfect option for those who want to do something else than a sightseen. The tour at night is superb. The guide was very nice. The wine was good as well.

The guided tour is both informational and intriguing. The tour takes you to the top of the lighthouse, so if you are afraid of heights or small/tight staircases, you may opt to just visit the lobby. The story of the building is mystical and related to the Divine Comedy.

The pub idling is an Argentine landmark. We did the evening tour . Our guide Tomas was very knowledgeable. The views of the city at night were fantastic and it ended with a little wine tasting. Try to go on a clear night. They have also several day tours. You need to be able to climb 6 floors of narrow... More

We went to this based on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. The tour is done in Spanish as well as English and was a really cute opportunity to do something off the beaten path. The host was energetic and pleasant and worked hard to insure that we English speaking people understood the dialogue. The piece de resistance was an... More
