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.

Well worth booking to visit this place. We were in a relatively small group with a knowledgeable and friendly bilingual guide who spoke great English. The entry fee was ARS195 for adults and the tours were running 12:00, 14:00, 16:00, 17:00, 18:00 and 19:00. They were also doing evening visits with music and wine tasting at an additional cost.

Ever since I first saw this building many years ago I have wanted to get inside and this time I finally managed to join a guided tour of Palacio Barolo. Our guide Barbara told us in Spanish and English about the background of the building, how it is inspired by Dante Alighieri's Divina Commedia, showed us many of the symbols... More

My husband and I took the night tour of Palacio Barolo. What a unique experience! We were able to get a 360 view of the city at night from inside the "lighthouse". After climbing up some very narrow winding staircases, we were treated to quite a thrill, especially because of the wind that was whipping around. Later we were treated... More

This is a rather beautiful building in the congreso area of Buenos Aires, you can enter the central hallway for free but payment is needed to ascend to the lookout and museum. The lookout is Nice with particularly good views of congres, but the museum is not worth the amount of money you pay for it

Great tour guide Alania, spoke beautiful English as well as in Spanish. The building was built in early part of the 20th century. You get to see several floors then climb a very narrow staircase up six more floors before climbing the last floor to the lighthouse. It was a 90degree, 32 Celsius day so a scorcher of day at...

Fantastic building with amazing views. If you do not like heights, however, it may not be for you. From the 14th floor you climb seven flights of stairs to the observation area where there are small balconies suspended over nothing. You can see the views from inside the viewing area as well if you do not like heights, but the... 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.
