“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Definitely worth visiting, you can only look around inside (other than the entrance hall) with a guided tour which are on the hour from 4 to 7 (more or less) and it cost 50 pesos argentinos. The tour was great and in spanish and english. The last bit of the tour was a bit worrying though, in the lighthouse right at the top not good if you don't like heights!

“Quirky Palace with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Great italianate palazzo. The tour takes you right to the top of the Palacio, with some good historical context. Its a great building and story, the guide and his family members have been doing this tour from its inception. I liked the view from the top, all the way to Uruguay in the North. However the "lighthouse" is hot and not well maintained. This isn't suitable for people who are disabled, with high blood pressure, large sized, or with acrophobia.

This is one of the most fascinating building in the city. Try to go on one of the building tours, which gives an amazing history of this building. Great photo opportunities,

“Great View from the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

The building is impressive and it has a great view from the top. you go up to the 14th floor and then up a narrow spiral stairway up to the top. If you are claustrophobic, you may not like it getting closer to the top. However the view of the city from the top is great. The guide was informative but serious. I enjoyed the visit.
