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

The building itself is fantastic! They offer the tour inside which is both in English and Spanish. It's very interesting! you go all the way up and have a great view from the last floor!

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

Book yourself on an evening/night tour, and you won't regret it. The views of BA by night from the top are brilliant. There are quite a few steps to climb, but the view is worth it. Super interior design as well

The building is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. The guided tour with Tomas was in English and Spanish, and it was very informative. I was very impressed by just how much the Divine Comedy was integrated into the not only the design the building, but other details (i.e. the location of the building). We did the evening tour which... More

The Palacio Barolo building has a wonderful, strange, and unique feel about it.. Paired with a fascinating history and the opportunity to visit hell, purgatory and heaven levels in one night, for me it's a must see in BsAs. Gaze out over the whole majestic night cityscape via 11 balconies facing out in all directions. For me, the tour would... More

Built according to Dantes Divina Comedia the palace in itself is a top atraction in Buenos Aires, but the best of it is the terrific view from the tower! Although to get into paradise be prepared to walk lots of small and steep steps!
