Tampa Bay's National Historic Landmark District

Historic Ybor City is Tampa’s Latin Quarter, the Bay Area’s only National Landmark Historic District. More than a century ago, it was home to thousands of new arrivals from Spain, Italy and Cuban … who helped build Ybor City into the cigar-making capital of the world. Today’s Ybor builds on that rich past with an eclectic mix of history, heritage, entertainment and excitement.
