The San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts was originally built to display works of art for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915, but was mostly rebuilt in 1965. It is currently enjoyed by visitors for its beauty, as well as by locals for private and corporate events and weddings. The entrance to the Palace of Fine Arts is often lively; you can often see children running about and playing in the open space. The lake and surrounding trees are also home to wildlife, such as ducks, birds and raccoons. The Palace of Fine Arts is designed in the Parisian Beaux-Arts-style and the interior of the rotunda's dome is exquisitely decorated. On top of the dusky red stone pillars stand sculptures of nymphs, which are a favorite subject of many photographers. The theater to the rear at the Palace of Fine Arts is a venue that also regularly hosts many diverse stage performances.

San Francisco has a garden-like American art palace
American art palace in English called Palace of Fine Arts. I don't know why it was translated into that. This art palace is also a long and bumpy place. It was originally built for Panama's Pacific International Exposition, and it was abandoned afterwards. It was later rebuilt by famous designers. This art palace is becoming more and more brilliant. And the sculptures of many buildings in the Palace of Art are also attributed to this designer.
Now, the American art palace teacher San Francisco locals like to go to the holiday to relax, not only the scenery is pleasant, the park's pool still has swan! Because it used to be a place for expositions, the interior of the building was often levied for large-scale events. Of course, apart from this, the architecture of the American Art Palace is truly magnificent, and it is difficult to find such a beautiful and retro building throughout San Francisco, where it seems to be in a park in a European country.
The Palace of Art is located in the northwest corner of San Francisco Island, and not far north is the highway that opens the Golden Gate Bridge.
Here is an antique Roman ruin built in 1915 and has a history of nearly a hundred years. The
Art Palace was temporarily built for the Panama Pacific Exposition and was abandoned after the meeting. Local supporters who saved the building raised funds and rebuilt the Palace of Art with permanent building materials to preserve the Palace of Art.
The Art Palace has no tickets, no parking fees, and is not a famous attraction, but also won a peace. Surrounded by various Victorian houses, there are no more tourists than locals. Walking dogs, squatting locals, and three or five groups of locals sitting under the tree and drinking beer. Its really only idle, which is hard to see in the bustling metropolis. The art palace is classically elegant, and the circular main building with arches and stone pillars is very beautiful in the cover of the pool and green trees. The
art palace is not big, but it is delicate and exquisite. Looking up, the gallery on the doorway is a statue of the guardian and a relief full of muscle warriors. Each rose-red stone pillar is a fairy sculpture with tears in their heads. They water the vines with tears, expecting the vines to flourish and cover their bodies.
The Palace of Art was built for the Panama Pacific World Expo in 1915. It is not only to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal, but also to reflect the new cityscape after the earthquake reconstruction. In 1962, the famous German architect Bernard Maybeck was redesigned to make it the building of the antique Roman ruins we have seen so far, visually giving a spectacular beauty.
