El Pueblo Viejo

Santa Barbara - A Guide to El Pueblo Viejo

Though celebrated as "The American Riviera" by dint of its unique charm and unsurpassed beauty, Santa Barbara would not be the coastal urban gem it is today were it not for the catastrophic earthquake of 1925 and the determined efforts of a few visionary civic leaders in the years immediately thereafter. Such is the broad thrust of Santa Barbara - A Guide to El Pueblo Viejo, a new book published by the Santa Barbara Conservancy that explores the city's extraordinary modern history by way of surveying its alluring Spanish-inspired architecture. Filled with maps, color photographs, and a wealth of historical detail and insights, the 294 page publication retails for $19.95
