The Roman Pool at Hearst Castle

The indoor pool at Hearst Castle in
San Simeon, California.

This is one of the gems in USA!
Hearst Castle is a mansion located in California,
now a National Historic Landmark.
It was designed by Julia Morgan for
William Randolph Hearst.

Look at this indoor Roman Pool!
It is decorated with eight statues of Roman gods, goddesses and heroes.
The pool and surrounding room were styled after an ancient Roman bath such as the Baths of Caracalla in Rome; the blue and gold mosaics were inspired by on the 5th Century Mausoleum of Galla Placidia in Ravenna, Italy.
intense colors and shimmering gold of the tiles combine
to create a breathtaking effect
