Museum by Day…..
Enchanted Palace by Night.


We are Very Excited to Introduce… St. Augustine’s NEWEST exclusive Wedding Venue!! The Newly Renovated Historic Villa Zorayda, built in 1883 is now available for Extraordinary Wedding Ceremonies! Your guests will experience an architectural masterpiece built by Franklin Smith in 1883. This Grand Gilded Age former home is a 1/10th scale replica of a portion of the famous Moorish Castle, the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. Your wedding ceremony will be set in the Court of Lions, surrounded by elegant columns and beautiful horseshoe arches with romantic hanging brass lamps throughout. Reminiscent of an exotic court in a far off land, your guests will be treated to a one-of-a-kind location for the wedding ceremony of your dreams. Your magic carpet awaits to a whole new world…
