AIRPORT - FAT. Alexander Pantages, impresario of a number of West Coast theaters, was a Greek immigrant who managed and organized scores of vaudeville acts across several states in the early part of the century. He had this fanciful theater which boasts Mediterranean and North African design details built as part of his empire. The building's charm lies in its octagonal tower entrance, ornate terra cotta detailing, and red tile roof. An elaborate ceiling dome distinguishes the interior, along with a rare pipe organ dating from 1929.

AIRPORT - FAT. More architectural achievement than gardens (although they're definitely an aspect of the place), this amazing spectacle is a tribute to creativity. Sicilian native Baldasare Forestiere hoped to farm the ten acres he bought in 1905. When hard stone made that dream impossible, he excavated parts of the property, creating an intricate network of rooms, courtyards, alcoves, and gardens that were simultaneously residence and career. Arches, columns, and vaults anchor the structure, which also boasts fruit trees, vines, and even water features in its below-ground rooms. The one-man fantasia is an absolute must-see for its unfaltering vision, dedication, ingenuity, and back-breaking efforts everything, in fact, was fashioned by hand. Tours are "weather-permitting" so call ahead for a recorded message for information.
