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. While you journey up the building, you will learn all about the symbolism that represents the ascension from hell, through purgatory, and finally reaching heaven, where you will experience the best views of Buenos Aires.

The tour will end in the 1923 Salon, located on the 16th floor of the palace, where you are welcome to stay after the tour to take more pictures of Buenos Aires from the top.
