…but that's not saying much. And there's not a lot else to say. This is not a destination per se, but if you're already in the Gables (on your way to the Biltmore Hotel or Venetian Pool, perhaps?) then stop by and have a look. The guarantee is that you will not find a similarly-presented structure on this continent. It... More

Not worth the travel; but if you are in the area... Great picture spot here! The old trees and natural beauty of Coral Gables gives this place a special feel.

This old water tower pops up in a residential part of Coral Gables as a surprising reminder of a bygone era. If you're interested in old municipal works, it's worth a look.

Not much to say. The water tower has been a fixture of Coral Gables forever. The architecture is typical of the area.

There isn't much to say about the Tower, except it is absolutely unique. The history is all aound the tower. The construction and purpose is equally enique. It's worth the trip.

too many traffic lights. one on every block. Hard to find addresses without a GPS, as all streets are names -- no numbers.

If you are driving in the Coral Gables area try to make a pass by the original water tower on Alhambra Circle. Pull over in the grass and take 5 minutes to walk around it and read the Historical Markers.

To the average citizen the Alhambra Water Tower is nothing special. But for Architects this was a great feat! This is one of the few water towers and the only one in Miami that isn't designed as a huge balloon on a stick with a tacky, 'city name' banner across. The water tower is beautiful, my boyfriend and I walk... More

This is not an attraction, it's just a very pretty water tower. It's something you drive by, not visit.
