Owner description: 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.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Though we were unable to go into the building our exterior tour and our guides narrative revealed the architect's link with Dante's Inferno.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Definitely worth visiting, you can only look around inside (other than the entrance hall) with a guided tour which are on the hour from 4 to 7 (more or less) and it cost 50 pesos argentinos. The tour was great and in spanish and english. The last bit of the tour was a bit worrying though, in the lighthouse right at the top not good if you don't like heights!

“Quirky Palace with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Great italianate palazzo. The tour takes you right to the top of the Palacio, with some good historical context. Its a great building and story, the guide and his family members have been doing this tour from its inception. I liked the view from the top, all the way to Uruguay in the North. However the "lighthouse" is hot and not well maintained. This isn't suitable for people who are disabled, with high blood pressure, large sized, or with acrophobia.
