Jacarandas

Avenida de Mayo, Buenos Aires

Argentina, 2011.

 

The building topped by a white dome is named Palacio Barolo, the tallest in Buenos Aires and all South America, by the time it was completed, in 1923.

On top the dome you can see a glass cabin, that is actually a lighthouse whose beacon light can be seen across Mar del Plata, in Montevideo, Uruguay.

It is possible to climb up, and enjoy a wonderful view of the city from there.
