Full description
The unique Barolo Palace has multiple architectural languages, and you'll be able to catch neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque references throughout the building. The dome is inspired by the love between Dante and Beatrice, the main characters of the Divine Comedy — the main inspiration of the building.

Both the palace and the book are divided into three parts: Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. 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 finishes in an office from the 1920s where you will enjoy a glass of Argentinian wine and a different show each day. On Mondays and Wednesdays, we have a tango show; on Thursdays, a cello concert, and Fridays and Saturdays, a violin concert.

Amazing building with an amazing story topped of by a stunning view of BA at night through the glass chamber housing one arm of the to be light bridge...... Finally topped by a glass of red wine and a pair of Tango dancers who commanded the timber floorboards to everyones satisfaction.

La Divina Comedia...el infierno, el purgatorio y el paraíso!!! Una logia masónica y el infierno del Dante en la historia del Palacio Barolo. Simbología esotérica y una estrecha relación con la Divina Comedia atraviesan la historia del inconfundible edificio de la Avenida de Mayo, construido para "guardar las cenizas de Dante Alighieri". Eso con mí visita se incorporó a nuestro capital cultural, gracias, Camila una excelente y cálida guía.
