Flagler College & Villa Zorayda



Two of St. Augustine’s most unique buildings are here at one train stop. The Villa Zorayda is a Moorish Revival styled castle built by millionaire philanthropist Franklin Smith in 1883 as the nation’s first poured concrete structure. It now houses millions of dollars worth of relics and antiques, including a 2,400 year old Egyptian cat-hair rug. Guided tours and audio tours are available.

Flagler College was once the grand Ponce de Leon Hotel, the crown jewel of Henry Flagler’s Florida Empire. Completed in 1887, the majestic building now serves as the main portion of the Flagler College campus and features a large collection of Tiffany glass in the dinning hall. Tours are available daily.
