Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a National Historic Landmark that preserves its cultural and environmental resources to engage people in connecting with the past, understanding the present and shaping the future. Built between 1914 and 1922 as the winter home of farming manufacturer James Deering, Vizcaya is one of the most intact remaining examples from this era in the United States, when the nation’s most successful entrepreneur-built estates were inspired by the stately homes of Europe.
Vizcaya’s Main House was inspired by Mediterranean architecture, specifically the great estates of Italy and Spain, and is filled with a decorative art collection featuring antiques from all over the world. Completed in 1922, the estate’s formal gardens are celebrating their centennial this year. The gardens 10 acres are modeled after the formal Italian style, focusing on symmetry and greenery while also incorporating elements of South Florida’s tropical landscape, including a rockland hammock (native forest) and mangrove shore.
Located on Biscayne Bay at 3251 South Miami Avenue, Vizcaya is open Wednesday through Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Closed Tuesdays, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
