Patagonia – Argentina Landmark
In the south of Argentina is one of its most famous attractions – Patagonia. This is a desert plain, where there is a harsh climate, precipitation is rare, there are many steppes atypical for this country, which looks truly unusual. One third of all the country’s land is in Patagonia. That is why the whole territory of the plain is divided between sheep farms. The farms contain the descendants of the first settlers of this territory, which today is a landmark of Argentina. All inhabitants of this region of the country observe their centuries-old traditions.
The natural complexes of the sights of Argentina Patagonia formed due to the contrast between the mountainous regions of the country and the plains.

Palacio Barollo as a landmark of Argentina
If you move away from the enumeration of the natural sights of Argentina, and do not take globally the whole south of the country, then you can note some architectural creations. Remembering Argentina can not be said about the Palacio Barollo Palace. It is located in the Montserrat district in the capital of the country, Buenos Aires. Avendino de Mayo Avenue is the particular place where the architect decided to erect this building. The building was built in 1923 by the project of Mario Palanti, a native of Italy.
The Palacio Barollo building is a peculiar reflection of the afterlife in the performance of Dante Alighieri, which he described in his Divine Comedy. Barollo consists of 22 floors, the basement of the building is Hell, floors from the first to the fourteenth are Purgatory, and Paradise is from the 15th to the 22nd floor. The number of songs of the Divine Comedy is 100, and Palacio reaches 100 meters high. This idea of Palanti is explained by the fact that he was fascinated by the work of Dante, and the writer himself considered the number 100 to be a symbol of perfection.
