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.

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

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

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.
