2000 Alhambra Cir, Coral Gables, FL 33134
A "lighthouse" that has never seen the sea, the famous Alhambra Water Tower is a testament to founder George Merrick's vision for the City of Coral Gables at a time when "everyday mishaps" were turned into "works of art."
And yes, it's a picturesque, history-filled spot you can visit for the best photos overlooking "City Beautiful!"
Located in north Coral Gables at the Alhambra Circle, just a 3-minute drive from West Miami, the water tower was built in 1924, comprising two separate structures.
The inner circle tank, purely utilitarian in looks and purpose, was enclosed in a reinforced concrete and wood frame structure designed to resemble a lighthouse.
It concealed the less attractive water tank inside with an aesthetically pleasing and architecturally playful facade.
During its heydays, the Alhambra Water Tower was part of the city's water supply system.
Today, Alhambra Water Tower is part of the Coral Gables Register of Historic Places and a famous tourist spot where visitors can see breathtaking city views!
For a more jaw-dropping experience, visit Alhambra Water Tower at night and witness this structure illuminated in the dark!
It'll be the best photo yet!
