Located in the Monserrat neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Palacio Barolo was the tallest building in South America from 1923 until 1935. It’s 22 stories high and was the first reinforced concrete building to measure more than 100 meters. Designed by Italian architect Mario Palanti, Palacio Barolo is topped by a lighthouse, and has one of the best views of the Argentine National Congress.

Palacio Barolo was declared a national historic monument in 1997. Presently, the building hosts several travel agencies, a Spanish school for foreigners, a store that sells clothes for tango, offices and studios of architects, accountants, and lawyers.

The only way to see Palacio Barolo is via a guided tour, so make sure to check prior to your visit.
