Tamron28-300mm. If you like dining inside a swimming pool, this is the place for you. The Café Alcazar is located in the deep end of the swimming pool formerly found in the Alcazar Hotel and Casino built by Henry M. Flagler in 1888 in St. Augustine, Florida. The hotel is now known as the Lightner Museum. This pool was considered the world's largest swimming pool in its day.
