Wander around the mansion looking for hidden corners or take a relaxing stroll through its gardens
A historic and luxurious mansion
Among the architectural jewels of Miami this mansion is one you have to visit. This place, which is considered by some to be the best attraction in the city, is a winter holiday-home commissioned by a wealthy industrialist right on the shores of Biscayne Bay, at the beginning of the twentieth century. Designed as an old Italian mansion, the house has been buffeted by at least one hurricane over the course of its history. Rebuilt on several occasions, today it shines more brightly than ever. In the fifties it was donated to the county by the heirs of the original owner on the condition that it be converted into a museum. Don’t miss the opportunity to check out the more than 30 rooms decorated with luxurious fifteenth and sixteenth-century furniture. When you leave the house, have a gentle stroll around the gardens and take it all in - the sculptures, the plants and trees, the stone fountains and the lake, as well as the magnificent views of the bay.
