Florida Discovers the Arts of Spain, 1885–1930

La Florida

Richard L. Kagan

University Press of Florida

The opening of St. Augustine's Ponce de León Hotel in January, 1887, marked the beginning of Florida's embrace of the architecture of Renaissance Spain together with the discovery of state’s Spanish heritage, a previously-neglected part of the state’s history. This discovery, Kagan argues, was part of a broader “Spanish Craze,” but one that in Florida quickly became synonymous with the promotion of tourism and the state’s image as a venue for Mediterranean luxury and delight.
