Waterfalls. Caves. Italian-style bridges. Towers. The Venetian pool in Coral Gables offers a one-of-a-kind swimming experience. The pool was originally carved out of a coral rock quarry, but it was transformed into a themed lagoon in 1924. And the pool’s beautifully-crafted setting has even earned it a place on the National Register of Historic Places. You can take a dip in the huge pool, which is filled with fresh water from an underground spring. Or claim a spot on the sandy beach and marvel at the lush Mediterranean landscaping and architecture.
