  Palace of Fine Arts

The name is misleading, this is not an art museum or a palace, just a really big dome. You do not think it is that big as you approach, but then once you are standing underneath the dome, you realize it is huge. Notice the angel sculptures as you walk up to it. Why are they all facing with their backs to you? This was a mystery to me. The lake around it is pretty and it would be a nice place to hang out, feed the ducks, have a picnic.
