The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a national historic landmark that once belonged to industrialist James Deering. Built in 1910, this sprawling mansion with its beautiful, serene gardens inspired by renaissance and baroque architecture definitely deserves a visit when in Miami. Located in the southern part of Miami, on Bascayne Bay, the Vizcaya Estate consists of the well maintained 34 bedroom mansion, acres of well landscaped gardens filled with a plethora of fountains and statues. This stunningly beautiful private villa inspired by European palaces, set amidst tranquil European gardens, filled with art and surrounded by exquisite interiors are definitely a must-see for those visiting Miami. A modern metropolitan city, Miami has very little historical places to visit, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens definitely fill that void.

While Muslim tourists visiting the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens may not find prayers rooms within its premises, they may be able to locate a clean and quiet area to offer their prayers. They will however find numerous mosques in the city of Miami. Visitors to the estate can therefore get directions to nearby prayer facilities from either the locals or at their hotels.
Although the Vizcaya estate includes a café within its premises, Muslim visitors may not find Halal cuisine at this café. While some visitors may choose seafood or vegetarian options to snack on, others may want to visit a Halal certified restaurant. Since the city of Miami is known to house numerous Halal restaurants, locating such an establishment will not be a problem at all.
