Santa Barbara - The Riviera


Bridging the two mile span that separates Mission and Sycamore Canyon, the sylvan uplift which padres knew as the “mission ridge” has for the past sixty-five years been known as “the Riviera” due to its resemblance to slopes along the Mediterranean coast of France and Italy. Santa Barbarians who are lucky enough to live on this ridge attach premium value to their homes because of their unsurpassed views of the city, mountains, ocean, and islands.

The Riviera is famous for its semitropical appearance. The flowing curves at the west end of Alameda Padre Serra today mark the old streetcar right of way, the curves being essential to provide a gradient which electric cars could negotiate. One of the older and most desirable neighborhoods in the city, the Riviera is a one of a kind area to live.
