A series of photographs of places in Buenos Aires along with some quick facts.
This photo shows the ceiling of the central atrium of Palacio Barolo. The building is located at 1370 Avenida de Mayo. The street runs from Plaza de Mayo, the location of the Casa Rosada, to the congressional plaza, crossing Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Obelisico, on its way. The building was designed by Mario Palanti and completed in 1923. It has twenty-two floors that are supposed to represent heaven, hell and purgatory as described in Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’. Palacio Barolo has a twin building in Montevideo, Uruguay. Both have a lighthouse at the top.
