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 were very lucky to get into this tour without a reservation on our last day in Buenos Aires. Someone had cancelled. What you should know: you will have to climb narrow stairs to the top. Getting to the top "Paradise" is difficult but worth...More

Designed around the book Dante's Inferno. The explanation is best from a guide. I took the night tour for the views. Those with Argentina IDs can buy discounted tickets. Check for reservations.

A tour to Palacio Barolo will allow the visitor a chance for panoramic views of Buenos Aires. The tour guide, Barbara, was excellent and well versed in Dante's Diving Comedy, which inspired Barolo and the architect Palanti in the design of the building. Tours are...More

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
