Sitting at the heart of California Wine country in the county of Sonoma, the city of Petaluma is just under forty miles north of regional hub San Francisco.
With an exceptionally well-preserved city centre, Petaluma’s residents are exceptionally proud of their architecture, much of which is over a hundred years old. Some of the town’s architectural gems include St Vincent de Paul Church and the U.S. Post Office building.
Without doubt the most significant landmark is Petaluma is Rancho Petaluma Adobe, a historic ranch house built in 1836 by order of Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, the famous general and statesman who helped shape modern California. The building is the nation’s largest and best preserved example of the Monterey Colonial style of architecture.
