Private Half Day Tour of Santa Barbara's Architecture

Private Half Day Tour of Santa Barbara's Architecture

Situated on a south-facing section of Californian coastline Santa Barbara lies between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Santa Barbara's climate is often described as 'Mediterranean', and the city has been branded as the "American Riviera" due to its similarities with the French Riviera. The Spanish influence is evident throughout the city with white stucco buildings, red-tile clay roofs and Spanish street names. In fact, two of the city’s iconic landmarks that you’ll visit Santa Barbara County Courthouse and the the18th-century Old Mission appear to have been transplanted directly from Spain. You’ll also visit El Presidio Real de Santa Bárbara a former military installation also known as the Royal Presidio of Santa Barbara founded and built by Spain in 1782. You’ll learn this and more from your Private Architectural Tour of Santa Barbara.
