The Palacio Barolo is a landmark office building in the Monserrat neighborhood that hides a number of curiosities. The building was designed by the Italian architect Mario Palanti for the businessman Luigi Barolo, with several curious architectural references to classical poet Dante Alighieri´s Divine Comedy. Palenti also incorporated Indian influences into his design. Inaugurated in 1923, the building was the tallest in South America until the construction of the Kavanagh building in 1935. It was the first reinforced concrete building measuring more than 100m and it is topped by a lighthouse.
