Caption

This is the center of activity in Balboa Park. Surrounding the Plaza are the group of buildings used during the 1915-16 Panama-California International Exposition and the 1935-36 California Pacific International Exposition. These buildings are among the finest examples of Spanish Renaissance architecture in the world. The California Tower, which was designed by the famous architect Bertram Goodhue, has been the symbol of San Diego.
