Additional Details:
This magnificent County Court House is a glorious tribute to the early Spanish days. This structure is acclaimed by world travelers as one of the most magnificent public buildings of modern architecture in the world. Reflecting the sentiment and traditions of this charming city, the building is Spanish in architecture, so resplendent in color and so beautiful in design that one forgets that it is a public building. Like a jewel in a beautiful setting, this court house is surrounded by spreading oak and pine trees, evergreens, graceful palms, lawns, flowering shrubs and sunken gardens. The white plastered walls, superb arches, unexpected towers, balconies and grilled windows result in a charming picture. Lack of space prevents a full description of this beautiful building, but we assure you that a personal visit will prove an inspiration. With the Spanish love for color displayed everywhere and the whole interior in full accord with the Spanish type of design and construction, the Court House reflects an ideal formed into the stone and steel of a majestic structure
