One of the most interesting and out of the ordinary sights in Miami is Vizcaya Mansion. The European style castle was planned by Burrell Hoffman and built from 1914 to 1916. Most of the materials and furniture were brought from Europe and the style mostly implies elements from the architecture of Renaissance villas.

The inside is breathtaing, a lot of luxury - they definitely knew how to live! It is wonderful place and the Renaissance gardens around the house are also amazing. My favorite detail is the half-indoor half-outdoor swimming pool with the archades.

Unfortunately we were not allowed to take pictures inside the house, but we made a couple of amazing photos about the outside and the gardens.

Address:
3251 South Miami Avenue
