Palace of Fine Arts
Originally built for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915, the Palace of Fine Arts now belongs to the city of San Francisco. Its design was inspired by Greek and Roman architecture, with large rotundas and colonnaded walkways. The Palace sits next to the Exploratorium and lagoon in the Presidio of San Francisco.
Fun Fact: Only one of the original eight domes and few of the walkways remain intact today.
