The Palace of Fine Arts Reopened to the Public

Palace-of-Fine-ArtsThe Palace of Fine Arts, one of the most popular landmarks in San Francisco, was reopened on Friday after a $21 million renovation that lasted seven years. The repairs included seismic upgrades, the replacement of the floor and the roof of the dome, as well as new pathways and entrances.

The site is 95 years old, and is the only original structure remaining from the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition. It was designed to look like a Roman ruin reflected in a lake, with thirty Corinthian columns framing the walkway and a 1,100-foot-wide rotunda.

Throughout history, the palace has hosted everything from art shows to trucks during World War II. Now, it is also considered one of the most romantic spots in the city, and often is used as a backdrop for marriage proposals and pictures.
