The website Thrillist.com has released a list of each state’s loveliest buildings and in Florida, the winner is Viscaya, the beautiful 1916 James Deering estate on Miami’s Biscayne Bay.

The Venetian-Tuscan-Italian Renaissance mansion-turned-museum was the dream of James Deering, who helped to found International Harvestor in the late 19th century.
