Description

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.

Halal Food
