Palace of Fine Arts & Theatre
Constructed as a temporary attraction for the 1915 Pan-Pacific International Exhibition, this Grecian monument continues to enchant and enhance the city. The original plaster, which made up the monument's exterior, has been gradually replaced with funds raised by the Marina's well-heeled residents who were loath to lose such a graceful part of their landscape. Swans in the adjoining lagoon glide by the soaring ochre-tinted colonnades and the imposing dome ringed with panels of centaurs and warriors engaged in battle over nubile maidens. Those column-top statues of sorrowing maidens turned away from prying eyes are using their tears to water the long-gone oaks that originally stood in the planters that they surround. Stroll inside the dome, clap your hands and marvel at the uncanny acoustics, then enjoy a picnic lunch on one of the park benches scattered to provide an unparalleled view of this gem. The Palace of Fine Arts also houses the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre and the Exploratorium .
All i ever heard was about this place or seen in movies the scenes there. This is a place where i loved the view of it all. It was a gloomy day in november and still had pictures that turned out GREAT! definitely will go back for even more pictures.
This place is amazing. Graceful swans glide on the water. Ducks chatter and wait for you expectantly for bread. Little turtles lie on rocks and bask in the sun that never reaches the Sunset, as if they know this. The sturdy orange pillars put the mind in awe that such grandeur could dwarf you so. Calm statues as tall as Titans gaze upon the water with their permanent expressions. Cranes are rare and beautiful sightings.
