This was a stop during our girls' trip to LA. The grounds were beautiful - we loved all the fountains and structures. You can easily walk around and get lost in the beauty of the center.

Awesome place to visit if you only went for the view. The art work is fantastic and rare. The 16th century furniture was awesome for a woodworker!
