View from Barolo Palace

By Sol Melanie | De todo punto com. | 6 Oct 2020

Barolo Palace is inspired by its owner’s admiration to Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy. The building was constructed between 1919 and 1923 by the architect Mario Palanti, and it has been one of the most emblematic places of Buenos Aires, Argentina


The hall




The palace is topped with a bronze dome, whose balconies were inspired by a Hindu temple dedicated to love and serves as the emblem of the union of Dante with his beloved Beatrice. The dome was originally topped with a statue of a condor (vulture) with the body of Dante elevating him to paradise. The dome also houses an incredibly powerful lighthouse that is visible across Río de la Plata in Uruguay.




 At the lighthouse on floor 22, you can experience a 360° view of all downtown Buenos Aires, especially a view of the National Congress and the Presidential House or Casa Rosada.
