Palace of Fine Arts

Local namePalace of Fine Arts
LocationSan Francisco, United States

Built in 1915, this palace is the only building that remained from the Panama-Pacific International Exhibition, despite being constructed solely for the duration of it.

The palace is now a frequent venue for wedding shoots and any photography-related events, thanks to its beautiful architecture reminding an ancient Roman ruin. Locals and tourists alike often come here to take a stroll and meditate, observing the garden that is nearby.

Apart from observing, you can also visit the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, offering various performances.

There is a small parking lot in the area, but you can also get here by bus (station Richardson Ave & Francisco St, lines 2, 4, 8, 18, 24, 27, 28, 30, 38, 44, 54, 56, 58, 70, 72, 74, 76, 91 and 93).
