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.

One of the most interesting buildings in Buenos Aires.

Lot of marble and incredible architecture ,two elevators with cylinder shape and a powerful light on top of the building like a light house in the city.

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.

Friendly ticket staff and a great guide showed us round speaking alternately in English first: just for me, and Spanish second for the others in the group. The tour really explains the history and design of the building very well and the original lifts you go up in are an experience in themselves. The balconies below the lighthouse have great... More

It was well worth the taxi ride and entrance fee of $200AR to do the 5pm day tour. The history and architecture are absolutely fascinating, and the exploration of the building and the lighthouse was amazing!! The tour was about 90 minutes, so plan ahead. We had heard it was only 45 minutes. Also, the last stair climb up from... More

I love getting a good view of a city, and I found Palacio Barolo online and decided to do the tour. I was not disappointed! I did the last tour of the evening at 6pm without booking in advance. I just walked up and purchased tickets before the time, and I am glad I did the evening tour because I... More

What a beautiful and unique building but what an unprofessional procedure to buy tickets, tried online several times but they respond a week later or not at all. Still waiting for a response. Eventually got our hotel to call and book. Upon arrival a very rude girl sitting in the booth did not say hello just barks out an amount.... More

We took the tour not really knowing what to expect. We found a great historic building. The tour guide was great speaking English (well) and Spanish. He had lots of information on the building's history. The lighthouse at the top was very cool. Be sure you are able to climb stairs though, you need to climb up six flights to... More

Quite unique and once the highest building in South America. Amazing architecture and if you do not have time for a tour, just to see externally and go into the main entrance will give you some idea of this palace.

Travelled to the Palacio Barolo with Mente Argentina study abroad group, had such a great experience, especially seeing the city at night. Sky scrapers for days! Such an interesting place to visit. Highly recommend!

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
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.
