The Santa Barbara courthouse was built in 1929 and besides being a architectural landmark also has a lookout tower open to the public with great views over the city.
Built in 1929, after the earthquake, in Spanish/Moorish style. You can climb the tower and look out over central Santa Barbara, the mountains on one side and the ocean on the other.
The courthouse, in Spanish-Morish style was built in 1929, but looks older. It is in full use as a courthouse.
