Santa Barbara County Courthouse

Santa Barbara, California

This is one of five stops on this tour. Find the hotspots (the cursor changes), click your mouse button, and then tour the grounds and the tower of the beautiful landmark.

This municipal building was completed in 1929 and is considered by many as one of the most beautiful buildings in the nation. Like most of Santa Barbara it was done in the Spanish-Moorish style. There are tropical gardens and vast lawns surrounding it. The interior included hand-painted ceilings, giant murals, rare art work, imported tiles, Tunisian tile work, enormous chandeliers, and more. You can go up the 80 foot clocktower for a panoramic view of the city. Open daily 9:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Admission is free.
