Ponce de Leon

There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.    Sophia Loren

In the awesome Historic section of St. Augustine sits the beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival architectural gem, the Ponce de Léon Hotel, which now is part of the Flagler College Campus. Flagler acquired the Hotel in 1968 as the centerpiece of the campus and set out on a mission to restore the Hotel,  in 2006  the building became  a National Historic Landmark.

The main entrance to the Building is quite breathtaking, I chose the fisheye to get as much of the interior and ceiling as I could, this building begs to be photographed inside and out.

Thanks for stopping!
