When it opened in 1923, Barolo Palace was the tallest building in the city and South America at 328 feet (100 m). Designed by Italian architect Mario Palanti in an eclectic style and infused with references to Dante's Divine Comedy, the architecture is a blend of neo-romantic and neo-Gothic with a crowning cupola inspired by a Hindu temple in Budanishar, India. Today is a landmark office building and historic landmark with one of the best panoramic views from the lighthouse at the top. Guided tours available.
