Full description
Choose from having a private tour in the afternoon or the evening. Celebrate anniversaries, birthdays and/or marriage proposals, and surprise your beloved one with a wonderful night.

Palacio Barolo is unique in the sense that it has a combination of neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque architecture. The dome of the palace is inspired by the love between Dante and Beatrice, the main characters of the Divine Comedy.
Following this theme, the palace is divided into three sections: Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. Access to the nine vaults that represent the nine steps of initiation and nine hellish hierarchies, and the lighthouse that represents the nine angelic choirs. Walk through the Dantesque floors and as you journey up the building, you will learn about the symbolism that represents the ascension from hell, through purgatory, before finally reaching heaven,

Once you reach the heaven portion of the tour at the dome, be treated to the best views of Buenos Aires.
