Park Adventure #2

How is this other worldly piece of structural art in San Francisco!?! it's so amazingly beautiful and random! The pond filled with ducks, the ice cream man rolling down the path, the green grass filled with sun bathers, and the ancient looking dome and columns make this place on of my favorite places to visit in San Francisco. Great to relax with a good book!

Absolutely beautiful architecture

The palace and surrounding grounds are absolutely a must to see. Unfortunately it's currently (10/06) being renovated and both the grounds and structures are closed to the public.

I love the place

My husband and I love it so much we held our wedding there. It is a magical setting for a wedding. Our wedding was a Renaissance Theme, several dozen people in period clothing. It was a sight to behold. We had a woman come up to us and tell us that she sees weddings there almost every week (she lives across the street) and ours was the most beautiful and original she has seen in all the years she lived there.

The acoustics are very interesting. If you stand in the exact center of the rotunda, and clap your hands one time (loud) the sound echoes several times quite distinctly.

There are lovely swans, too. Swimming elegantly along. Creating a dreamlike atmosophere. Esp on foggy days (not many of those in SF, right?)

The only show I have seen there was my wedding, but it was a great one.

A San Francisco Treasure...

This structure is one of the most beautiful sights that San Francisco has to offer! Although it is not as well known as the Golden Gate Bridge you have the same sense of awe standing in the center of the Rotunda looking up as you do walking across the Golden Gate. The beautiful landscape includes a small lake, plenty of trees, a plush lawn and many animals from birds to squirrels to make it complete. If you are ever in San Francisco and have a free afternoon, I highly recommend stopping by!

what a view!!!

I visited the palace a few weeks ago for the first time and found it to be absolutely gorgoeus. Although there were bums, they did not bother us at all.The deteriorating statues and old architecture is exactly what gives it it's character.It was free and easy to get to using public transportation. The exploratorium, next door, I found to be overpriced and more for children. The palace is a must see..atleast once! And if you walk across the street, you have a great view of the golden gate bridge.

yeah, it was in that Mike Myers Film...

Yeah, it was in that Mike Myers film, ""So I Married an Axe Murderer"" and ""The Other Sister"" to name just a couple. The Palace of Fine Arts is one of the most beautiful and romantic places in San Francisco. You're sure to see a wedding party there taking photographs or a couple smooching by the Corinthian architecture. For photographers (or those who just like to take pretentiously artsy black and white pictures), the grounds are an ideal location for that impromtu photo shoot.
