riviera-neighborhood

Bridging the 2 mile span that separates Mission and Sycamore Canyons, the sylvan uplift which padres knew as the “mission ridge” has for the past 65 years been known as “the Riviera” due to its resemblance to the slopes along the Mediterranean coast of France and Italy. Santa Barbarans lucky enough to live on this ridge attache a premium value to their homes because of their unsurpassed vies 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.
