Built in 1929 and the grandest building in the town. A working courthouse, this Spanish-Moorish castle has frescoes, murals and Tunisian tilework. The El Mirador Bell Tower provides great views.
The courthouse has a long history of fires, earthquakes and rebuilds. The architecture is so different, moorish elements and Spanish revival with some wacky design features thrown in. The 360 degree view at the top gives you the best overall view of Santa Barbara. Not to be missed! You can tour…
Point of Interest
“This venue houses the best and most respectable shows in town, maybe the west coast. Check out their website for a current list of productions. ”
“The 10 min drive is worth the views and food. On the beach dining, gets busy with tourists and locals at sunset. We love the Lobster Mac n Cheese and the Seafood Pasta dish”
“Fantastic concert space with panoramic views and not to big. Drinks and snacks also available. Take a jacket because it can get chilly as it’s open air. ”
“The museum has an amazing collection for such a small town, thanks to the many wealthy people who live in the area. It has the largest collection of Claude Monet paintings on the west coast. It is currently undergoing a huge remodel and by 2021 it will be even more impressive than it is now. And I’m a docent there so of course I feel that it’s a great place. Open again October 11th!
