The Palacio Barolo is a remarkable and luxurious building, designed by Italian architect Mario Palanti, by request of a powerful Argentinean textile tycoon. Finished in 1923, the Palacio Barolo was meant to be the final resting place of Dante Alighieri's ashes, a safe haven for the writer's remains far away from a war-torn Europe. That dream never came true, and today it is mainly used as an office building. Filled with countless exquisite references, to the Divine Comedy and wonderfully decorated, it was the tallest construction in South America for several years. The view of Buenos Aires city-center from the 24th floor is second to none. Guided tours are available.
