Join us this upcoming Holiday Season for the Villa Zorayda’s 10th Annual  “Candlelight Tours” of the Museum which are offered on select evenings during St. Augustine’s “Nights of Lights” Celebration. The Zorayda showcases beautiful Christmas decorations for the Holidays. A spectacular Christmas Tree decorated in the colors of the Zorayda – red and gold – is located center stage in the “Court of Lions”. Over 100 candles are aglow throughout the Museum as our docents lead you on your tour of this historic former home. These specialty tours have become one of the most popular things to do during St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights Celebration. Reservations are recommended.

This tour requires standing and walking for the duration of the tour. There is no elevator inside the Villa Zorayda Museum. Candlelight Tours typically last about 1.5 hours and include an in depth  overview of the history of the Villa Zorayda, its previous owners, and the art and antique collection inside.

Come early and enjoy refreshments of homemade Christmas cookies and punch, included with Select Candlelight Tour Dates. In addition we also offer Candlelight Tour dates which do not include refreshments.
Reservations are highly recommended as space is limited. Please call 904-829-9887.
