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.

Their night tour extravaganza with tango is amazing. We were a group of 6 people and had the most amazing evening exploring the building with a knowledgable guide who spoke Spanish and English. We spend 2 hours looking through different areas of the building from bottom all the way to the top of the lighthouse. Being in the lighthouse was... More

We did the night tour, which included a tango performance and wine tasting at the end. The tour provided the history of the building, traveling throughout to review the hidden symbolism in the work. Our tour guide switched between Spanish & English, asking to know who the English speakers were beforehand so that he spoke directly to us, which I... More

We reserved the tour via e-mail, very easy and without pre-paying. Specially worthy if you are interested in architecture, the tour was carried out in an hour and a half, you visit the first floors (the most decorated of the building) and the upper floors just up to the lantern (don't climb if you are claustrophobic, but you have very...

Be ready to climb very narrow winding staircase to the top, but worth the view when finally get to the top. Curious history of this art-deco building on Av Mayo

The palace has an interesting story and history, well integrated in the history of Buenos Aires. The architecture is very special and from the top of the building you can have a stunning view of the city. We had an excellent guide (young guy, I regret that do not remember the name), who gave all explanations in both Spanish and... More

My husband and I did this tour today and thought it was really worth while. We had great views from the 20th Floor and I enjoyed learning about how the building's design was inspired by the Devine Comedy. Would recommend booking in advance, easy to do by email as the company replied straight away.

The building has a lot of potential, which is not taken advantage of. First, the lobby (ground floor) is the really only part of the building that has true architecture that one can link to the Divina Comedia. It seems that all the money was spent here; the rest of the interior is very simple. In any case because of... More

A Great Great building inspired by La Divina Comedia of Dante. Go up from hell to Paradise. At the top, an extraordinary view of the city.

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.
