Explore the historical campus of Flagler College, named after the famous industrialist Henry Morrison Flagler. You can wander the grounds on your own or take a student-led tour that grants access to more rooms. The centerpiece of the campus is Ponce de Leon Hall. The Spanish Renaissance-style building, a National Historic Landmark, was built in 1888 as a luxurious hotel, but today serves as a dining hall and residence hall for female students. Gaze up at the dining hall ceiling to see 200 hand-painted lions with lightbulbs in their mouths. The building also has colorful stained-glass windows and mosaics. Leave time to relax in the scenic college grounds. Plan your visit to Flagler College and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our St. Augustine trip builder app .

I can't really say much since I didn't enter the building but I have to give it 5 stars for the exterior alone. Beautiful, very detailed. If I have a chance to go back, I'll go for a tour.
