This is a building on the Plaza Independencia with unusual architecture, a mix of styles.It has been described as "a lighthouse on top of a building.

Located right on Plaza Indipendencia, Palacio Salvo was designed by Italian immigrant architect Mario Palanti in a fashion similar to that of Palacio Barolo in Buenos Aires. It was finished in 1928 and it is 100 meters high. It was originally intended to be a hotel but eventually occupied by a variety of offices and private residences.

A very interesting building to see. Unlike anything I have seen before. Larger than I expected it to be and very ornately detailed.

First to Review

At the western end of Plaza Independencia, at 100 meters high, Palacio Salvo was once the tallest building in South America. Built in 1925 by the Italo-Argentine architect Mario Palanti (of Palacio Barolo, Buenos Aires, fame), it was designed to become a world-class hotel but that never materialized. Today it houses offices of big companies as well as residential apartments.
