The Villa Zorayda Museum in St. Augustine, FL spans over 133 years of historical significance, offering exhibits and displays that are sure to impress. The museum offers fully guided tours that give tons of information, as well as audio tours with handheld devices that allow you to explore at your own pace while learning about the history.

The museum covers two floors with one flight of stairs and features beautiful works of colorful architecture.

About Villa Zorayda


Built as a winter home in 1883 by millionaire Franklin Smith. The home is inspired by 12th-century Moorish Alhambra Palace in Spain. It was the first residence in Florida that was built in the Moorish Revival style. After being used as a residence for 20 years, the building was transformed into a dance club and restaurant named the Zorayda Club.

If you love interesting facts, architecture, and artwork, the Villa Zorayda is a must-see attraction in St. Augustine.
