Barolo Palace

The Barolo Palace was built by the Italian architect Mario Palanti at the request of the businessman Luigi Barolo. It was inaugurated in 1923 and became the tallest building in South America, surpassing height regulations by up to four times (reaching a height of 100 meters above Av. de Mayo). It held this distinction for eight years until the construction of the Kavanagh building. 

The Barolo Palace has other unique features that make it special. For example, it was the first nearly 100-meter-high reinforced concrete building in the city. It is topped by a rotating lighthouse with 300,000 candlepower on the 22nd floor. In 1923, that lighthouse used its lights to transmit the result of the world heavyweight boxing championship fight between Luis Angel Firpo and Jack Dempsey in New York.

Open from Monday to Sunday, from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm.
