The former Alcazar Hotel is a historic landmark that exudes charm and grandeur.

Originally built in the late 19th century by Henry Flagler, it epitomizes Spanish Renaissance architecture and served as a lavish winter resort. The hotel boasted opulent amenities, including a casino, Turkish and Russian baths, a bowling alley, and a grand ballroom.

Today, the building houses the Lightner Museum, showcasing an impressive collection of art, artifacts, and curiosities. Visitors can explore the museum's exquisite galleries and marvel at the intricate architectural details that transport them back to a bygone era of elegance and sophistication.
