Casa de la Guerra

Located in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, Casa de la Guerra is centrally located near many attractions and hotels. Using materials and building methods similar to its original construction, the Casa has been restored to its original appearance during the time Presidio Commandant José de la Guerra and his family resided there, between 1828 and 1858.

The Casa is a beautiful venue to hold your wedding ceremony and reception. The courtyard offers strings of lights for ambiance, decomposed granite flooring in an open courtyard, and easy access for vendors/rental companies. Use of a prep kitchen, restrooms, and storage room on site is also available.
