Survey the streets of Buenos Aires from a lighthouse atop Palacio Barolo, a 22-storey building designed by Italian architect Mario Palanti. The landmark, which at the time of its construction in 1923 was the tallest in the city, now houses shops, offices, and studios. Constructed in tribute to Dante's "Divine Comedy," the building features a concrete facade and three distinct sections representing heaven, purgatory, and hell (we assume the offices are in the "hell" section). Climb to the top of the iconic palace to enjoy dramatic views over the city. Make Palacio Barolo a centerpiece of your Buenos Aires vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Buenos Aires visit planner.

We chose this second option because it is cheaper and more expensive to drink and eat something. Recommended to go there at sunset. The view is on the rooftops of the city, a skyline not quite of the best but still has its charm. It's worth booking.
Genial ..imperdível ..ainda mais no fim da tarde ..ver o pôr do sol de Buenos Aires ..com uma música de fundo maravilhosa tomando um Torrontes indescritível ..não tem preço rsrsr more »Great.. Must.. Even more at the end of the afternoon.. See the sunset of Buenos Aires.. With a wonderful background music taking an indescribable Torrontes.. Has no price RSRSR
Quite a story of Italian Diligence, bringing to new generations the imponderable mysteries of The Divine Comedy. More a monument than a palace. Good tour is discounted for Argentinian student or senior with ID.
Great views, interesting background, but nothing you can't get from Wikipedia. The tour is a bit overpriced for basically, a great view, an office view from the 20s, and going up to the claustrophobic light tower, with a free lemonade at the end. Time would be better spent in a park. The prices were also just recently introduced. The pictures contain pretty much everything you'll see.
