I was watching the Travel Channel today and was amazed to see the Hearst Castle's Neptune Pool in the Santa Lucia Mountains designed by Julia Morgan. The Neptune Pool was built for perfection, why? It was rebuilt three times from 1924 and finally completed in 1936. The impressive features of this luxurious pool are the following: fountains, sculptures, marble pavilions, ancient temple façade and alabaster lanterns. Neptune Pool holds 35,000 gallons of water. It is 58 wide and the length is 104 feet with variations of 3.5 to 10 feet depths.

The Neptune Pool is a gorgeous pool isn't it? With the design elements and architectural details added to this place, I would think that this place is in Europe. Well, if you are in California, #HearstCastle is located between San Francisco and Los Angeles. I would love to check out this place one day. Do you want to see this place? You can purchase a ticket for $25 (adult) and $12 (children). Better yet, just visit hearstcastle.org for more info. Have fun!
