Casa Romantica San Clemente
Visit Casa Romantica - The best date in the city
There are many great places with a view throughout San Clemente, but Ole Hanson's Casa Romantica has a good shot at the title of "best". The home of San Clemente's founder was built in 1927 by Carl Lindbloom, a well known architect of the time. Overlooking the pier bowl along the Northwestern ridge, Casa Romantica is an absolute must see for anyone visiting San Clemente. For $5 you can tour Ole Hanson's estate and check out San Clemente from one of the best views your eyes will see. It's not the Grand Canyon, but it sure is a beautiful view of the San Clemente Pier, T-Street, and beachfront area.
Cultural Center & Gardens
The Casa Romantica estate is nothing but sheer beauty. Five acres of space including wonderfully designed living spaces, relaxation spaces, entertaining rooms, dining, and of course the amazingly kept gardens. Imagine living in a small estate with your entire family. King's of the past built huge castles for enjoyment, and this little estate atop the hills of San Clemente was designed for the same thing. Ole Hanson the designer and founder of the City of San Clemente built this house as an escape for himself and the family. Today it has been transformed into a multi-purposed museum and function center with plenty of fun events to attend including live performances, art shows, and more.
Garden & Grounds
For any gardener, it's simply stunning. The gardens at the Casa Romantica are beyond beautiful. Meticulously maintained and kept the gardens and walking paths of this amazing estate are some of the best designed and kept anywhere. If you have any interest in plants or gardening, it would be worth the trip just for that.
