FRANCISCO'S MOST HISTORICAL
& ICONIC LANDMARK VENUE
Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts is the only surviving building in
the Marina District from the 1915 Panama-Pacific International
Exposition celebrating the opening of the Panama Canal and San
Francisco's recovery from the 1906 Earthquake and Fire. Widely
considered the most beautiful structure at the exhibition, the
Palace of Fine Arts is the work of California architect Bernard
Maybeck. Inspired by a Piranesi engraving that features a Roman ruin
reflected in a pool, Maybeck’s masterpiece was the mirror of a ruin
that existed not for its own sake but to show “the mortality of
grandeur and the vanity of human wishes.” Like other features of the
fair, the Palace was meant to come down at the close of the fair;
however, the citizens of San Francisco felt it was just too
beautiful to destroy. Now over 100 years later, The Palace of
Fine Arts remains one of the most admired and photographed sites in
all of San Francisco.
