  • Enjoy a 360-degree perspective of Buenos Aires from the viewpoint at almost 100 meters high
  • Take in the amazing view from inside the old lighthouse at the highest point of the building while your guide tells you all about its history

Full description
Barolo Palace has a unique architectural language with neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque references, and a dome inspired by the love between Dante and Beatrice, the main characters of the Divine Comedy.

Both the palace and the book are divided into three parts: Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. Access to the nine vaults represent the nine steps of initiation and nine hellish hierarchies, and the lighthouse represents the nine angelic choirs. The tour consists of walking through the most representative Dantesque floors. As you journey up the building, you will learn all about the symbolism that represents the ascension from hell, through purgatory, before finally reaching heaven, where you will experience the best views of Buenos Aires while your guide lights up the century-old lighthouse.
