Overflowing with references to Dante’s Divine Comedy, this building is it’s architect’s life masterpiece. You won’t want to miss the Baroque arches and cage elevators, or the view from the dome at the top. Now it’s an office building, but you can still check it out in a tour, which leaves on the hour every hour between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays. It’s AR$20 and is given in English and Spanish.

Av. De Mayo 1370 at San José.
