Inside The Alhambra Water Tower! Part 2…Outside

In part 2 we are going to explore the outside of the Alhambra Water Tower.  Only The Coral Gables Blog gets you this exclusive access to the outside of this famous landmark.  Ok enough shameless promotion.

The tower is honestly one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while.  If you did not read the sign on Part 1, you did not learn that the edifice of the building was actually constructed to resemble a lighthouse so as to hide the horribly hideous sight of a water tower.  It is one of the earliest examples of Coral Gables taking it a cut above the rest, enjoy the pics and remember to click for larger views!
