Trees are sanctuaries.
Whoever knows how to speak to them,
whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth.
They do not preach learning and precepts,
they preach undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.

– Hermann Hesse, Wandering

B&W: Lobero Theatre

Santa Barbara, California
Santa Barbara, California

I usually travel to California every year because I have family there.

One of my favorite cities at the South of the State is Santa Barbara. There are many reasons of my attraction to this wondeful place; one of them is the beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival style architecture that characterizes the City.

In one of the travels I made over there, I took a walking tour about Santa Barbara’s architecture that starts at Santa Barbara Public Library. The tour is guided by a member of the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara, and the donation is $10.00 per person .

One of the visits of the tour is the Lobero Theatre, which is the oldest theatre in California and it is considered an architectual jewel as well as a City and State landmark. It was founded in 1873 and rebuilt in 1924.
