09 Nov Patio Del Moro (1926)
This courtyard complex of seven maisonette apartments is of Spanish Revival style with extensive Moorish detailing. The use of Moorish design elements is attributed to the Patio’s original owner, a physician who had traveled widely in North Africa and Spain. The Moorish features include a copper-domed Tunisian tower, horseshoe-arched entrance tunnel, tiled fountains in the public and private patios, horseshoe and pointed-arch doorways and fireplaces. Each of the maisonette apartments has a specific name and details that differentiate one from the other.
