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.

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

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!

It´s just in downtown. It´s a different building. You can do the guided tour and you arrive at the highest part of it where you can see the whole city. The whole tour takes 50 minutes. It´s better to book a place in the tour. You will enjoy it. You can also do the night tour where you will taste... More

This tour is a must do in Buenos Aires, unfortunately it only can be done Saturdays or Sundays. But really worth it 100 %. The history involved on the construction of this great tower building is very interesting, the panoramic views from the top balconys are amazing in the early afternoon the colours of the city that you can see...

Argentina used to be the 7th economy of the planet...in 1920. This building was built when the country had a great future. Worth to take a look

My husband and I joined a group of 7 for the midday tour. We were the only non-Spanish speakers in the group. Our tour guide was not only knowledgeable but very friendly to us all and answered all the questions posed to him in both languages. He took lovely pictures of us all when we got to the very top...

We took the guided tour and are so pleased we did. It was entertaining, fascinating and great value. There are so many gorgeous details that the designer thought out. I loved the dragon and condor gargoyles in the main floor lobby. The view from the top was amazing and a great way to see the city and how dense it... More

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.
