We really enjoyed seeing the Palace of Fine Arts. It is a beautiful building in a very attractive setting overlooking a small lake. Quite stunning and interesting for people who appreciate architecture and enjoy wandering through an interesting construction. It really isn't much more than an elaborate folly. There is no "interior" space. But worth the visit in our view.

This is a fantastic venue for a concert the hall was very comfortable with good seats everywhere! It was easy to find via taxi & the only thing I would say is to call ahead for a taxi to pick you up for your return...call 333.3333 Yellow Taxi :)

This is a concert venue but also an architectural wonder. I would recommend to see it during sunset, with amazing views and photo opportunities. A lovely neighborhood, which deserves a nice walk. Parking on the nearby streets.

The Palace of Fine Arts is a marvellous structure originally constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. If you enjoy architecture do not miss this icon of the area, It was rebuilt in 1965. The renovation of the lagoon and a seismic retrofit were completed in early 2009, It is tranquil place for the pictures and picnics surrounded by architecture, quiet neighbourhood even though there were crowds of people. It was like being back in Roman times and the weeping ladies were Majestic. There is picturesque lake which is home to beautiful swans, I really enjoyed my visit there.
