Rich with culture, art and beautifully designed buildings, San Francisco is one of the greatest cities in the world. While famous for its renowned bridges, San Francisco has plenty of other beautiful and important buildings and monuments across the city.
San Francisco City Hall
Located in the heart of the city in the Civic Center neighborhood, City Hall is the place of local government for San Francisco county and city. Originally built in 1899 after 27 years of planning, the original city hall was destroyed in the 1906 earthquake. The present building was reconstructed in the similar Beaux-Art or Neoclassical architectural style as the original building. Films that feature San Francisco City Hall include Raiders of the Lost Arc and Milk. The city hall is open 8:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday through Friday and offers tours to the public.
